LARGO - Pinellas County Animal Services is seeking responsible teen volunteers to help leader volunteers with dog walking. Teens must be between the ages of 16 and 18 and must commit to 12 hours per week at the shelter. The eight-week program will begin on Monday, June 9, and end on Saturday, Aug. 9.
The Pinellas County Animal Services Teen Program is designed to prepare teens in the community for future leadership roles, create a sense of motivation and teach invaluable skills that will enable teens to grow into responsible young adults. By working at the shelter, teens will be prepared for the work force, gain hands-on experience and earn community service hours for graduation.
Students can download an online application at the Pinellas County Animal Services website at www.pinellascounty.org/animalservices/volunteer.htm or complete the application at the Pinellas County Animal Services shelter located at 12450 Ulmerton Road in Largo. Space in the program is limited. Applications must be received by Saturday, May 31.
Orientation training is scheduled for Thursday, May 22, and dog walking training with a lead volunteer is scheduled for Thursday, May 29. Morning and afternoon four-hour shifts are available Monday through Friday. Saturday shifts are available in the mornings only as the shelter closes early.
