Age Requirements

Because of the nature of the work we are doing with rescue animals whose background history is unknown, we are not able to accept volunteers under the age of 12 at our facility for insurance purposes. However, young children may be able to earn volunteer hours for us from home through our Junior Volunteers program. Volunteers under the age of 16 are required to be accompanied by a parent or guardian who also registered as a STHS volunteer.


Family volunteer teams must fill out separate applications, one for each parent and each child. You must use a different email for each person in order for our system to assign you a unique PIN, which is used to track your volunteer hours.
