Requirement Details
SAPA @ PetSmart welcomes volunteers 14 years of age and older.

If under 18:
16-17 years old – provide a SAPA Waiver Release form (youth must submit an individual application)
12-15 years old – volunteer with a parent/legal guardian at all times (youth and parent must each submit an individual application)
Enrollment fees are as followed:

Constant Companions ( General Volunteers ) = $ 20.00
Paw Pals ( Community Service Volunteers ) = $25.00
Court Order ( Community Service Volunteers ) $30.00

There is a registration Fee which covers your SAPA! Volunteer T-Shirt, Name Tag, and background check procedures. Note that the registration fee also funds SAPA! programs and helps us continue our live saving programs, so if you are able to donate at a higher fee we appreciate the additional support. For Community Service we are very fortunate that a lot of people are interested in volunteering with SAPA! However the actual number of volunteers who end up volunteering long-term is very small. approximately 10% after a year. This is typical for non-profits, and we LOVE OUR VOLUNTEERS. Fees can be covered by cash and credit cards ONLY.

If you have reservations on the fee, or constitutes a financial hardship for you, you may request a fee waiver by contacting volunteer@sanantoniopetsalive.org.
