Note: All volunteers for the Calvert Animal Welfare League must be age 14 or older. While volunteering at the center, children age 14 age to 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. Due to insurance regulations, no one under the age of 18 may walk our dogs.
ANIMAL CARE TECHNICIANS
Duties include the care of the center's pets, including but not limited to: feeding, watering, bathing, and grooming. In addition, the caregiver would also participate in maintaining the center environment in a clean, orderly, and sanitary manner. We will provide training for qualified applicants.
Foster homes are critically needed to save dogs and cats from being put to sleep. In your home, the healthy CAWL pet will live in a safe and caring environment until placed with a permanent family by our adoption teams. You must serve as a volunteer at the center for a time period of 2 months before applying for status as a foster home.
Volunteers as always needed to help at our fundraisers and public appearances. We need volunteers that are are outgoing and willing to engage and educate the public at those events.
We accept quality cat, kitten, dog and puppy food, cat litter, cat carriers, cat condos, small towels and small wire crates in good condition are also needed as supplies for our adoptive pets. Please see our complete list located on 'Donate' page of this site.
NOTE: For safety reasons, we do not accept ANY products which are made in China. This includes toys, as many animal toys from China have been found to contain lead. (You don't want children handling these eather.)
