Orientations are held at the Animal Care Services Annex Building (Highway 151). We ask volunteers to attend orientation after the completion of your membership application and the submission of a background check form required by city of San Antonio. Our session is typically a one and a half to a two hour long classroom based session as we will discuss SAPA! mission, San Antonio's NO Kill city history ,many of the available volunteer opportunities, and the volunteer platform. We look forward to meeting you!

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.
*PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE PLACED YOUR VOLUNTEER SHIRT ORDER*
