Monthly Offsite

12:00 PM


Our monthly offsite will be at Petco from 12pm to 4pm. PAWS volunteers brings well deserving animals from the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter to Petco in hopes to find them forever homes. We need volunteers to work 12pm to 2pm & from 2pm to 4pm. We also need volunteers on Friday 03/22/13 at the shelter to help bath the dogs going to Petco for the offsite. If you are able to volunteer for either or both days please fill out the volunteer form!

Offsite Guidelines

All volunteers requesting to work at an offsite will be required to fill out the PAWS Offsite Volunteer Form for each offsite.

Any volunteer under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult that is willing to closely supervisor the minor.

Offsites are 4 hour periods that are broken into 2 shifts. The 1st shift is from 12 to 2 & anyone volunteering for this shift should arrive 15 minutes early in order to receive name badge, help unload the dogs, unload & setup tables, tag machine, water bowls & help clean up any accident the animal might have made on the ride over. The 2nd shift is from 2 to 4 & the volunteer should arrive a little early to receive their name badge, get acquainted with the animal & learn what information we have on the animal. All volunteers should wear comfortable clothing, comfortable shoes & a PAWS name badge.

No volunteer will bring their own personal animal or foster animal to an offsite that they are volunteering for. Your full attention is required for the shelter animal. If the volunteer notices any aggressive behavior from any animal the volunteer will report it to a PAWS Board of Directors member.

All volunteers will have complete control over their animal at all times. Volunteers will not allow children to put their face in the animals face, volunteers will not allow the animal to jump on people, and volunteers will not allow the animal to play with other animals. Volunteers will be positive about their animal but will not be pushy to an interested adopter. The volunteer is responsible for making sure the animal stays calm, has plenty of water to drink, takes potty breaks, & is presented to all potential adopters in the best manner.

PAWS of NE Louisiana will not be held liable for any injuries sustained during the offsite by an uncontrolled animal. If an incident with an animal or volunteer does occur, the volunteer will report the incident to a PAWS Board of Directors member immediately.
