Helen Woodward Animal Center Volunteer Orientation

This is a great opportunity to register to be a volunteer for the Helen Woodward Animal Center. The "becoming a volunteer" process seems kinda a lot (volunteer application, orientation, interview of some sort) but I think that it's worth it. The HWAC has a lot of volunteering opportunities, and there's an event for ages 14 and up where you get to work with animals. More info at: http://www.animalcenter.org/volunteer/
Like mentioned before, to become a volunteer, you have to attend an orientation (mandatory). There's different dates but the ones in the summer are: July 18 and August 1. If you want to go, please download the volunteer application and fill it out. To download the application, go to the above website. On the left side, there's a turquoise column and there's a link that says "volunteer application." I will be going to the August 1 orientation.
Time: 9 a.m.-12:00 noon Meet at TP at 8:30 a.m.
6461 El Apajo Rd. in Rancho Santa Fe (not too far from TP)
