Volunteer Information

Volunteers are the heart of who we are at The NOAH Center. They are our ambassadors who carry the powerful message of The NOAH Center's mission and the work we do to save more animals. 

We offer a variety of volunteer positions that include giving hands-on care to animals, educating our community, providing administrative support and more. Volunteers at The NOAH Center find a deep sense of satisfaction in contributing to the health and well-being of animals. 

How to Get Started

Prospective volunteers must complete a Volunteer Application and a Volunteer WSP WATCH Background Check Form and submit it to, volunteer@thenoahcenter.org. Our Volunteer Coordinator will follow up with you to answer any questions and schedule a time to orient you with our organization and start you on your volunteer experience helping to save homeless animals.

Volunteer Requirements

Commitment
We value any time that you are willing to contribute. Our daily operations depend heavily on our volunteers covering certain shifts. These shifts vary 2-6 hours per day depending on the volunteer job position. We hope that all of our volunteers can cover at least one shift a week and can commit to at least four months. However, we have many opportunities that will work with a variety of schedules.

Volunteer Membership
All new volunteers are required to enroll in our membership program as a condition of service. The membership fee is a one-time fee of $25 per person and includes one volunteer t-shirt, name badge, and training. If you are unable to pay the membership fee special accommodations can be made with the Volunteer Coordinator on a case by case basis.

High School Community Service
High school students in need of school required community service hours are welcome to volunteer. All volunteers must be at least 14 years of age. Anyone 14 or 15 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian while volunteering their time. Students will be scheduled according to their service hour requirements. These students do not need to attend a volunteer orientation and the membership fee will be waived.

Court Ordered Community Service
Unfortunately, we are not able to assist with court-ordered community service hours. Due to liability reasons, we do not accept anyone convicted of any felony charge, violent crimes against people or animals, theft, weapons or drug charges. If you have ever been convicted of a felony you must disclose the date and the nature of the crime (information will be held in confidence). Background checks are required.
