Volunteer Application

To become a Paws & Think volunteer, please follow the steps below.

Step #1

Complete the online background check.

The volunteer background check is $17 payable online via credit card. Background checks are required for all new volunteers age 18 or older to ensure we provide a safe environment for all we serve. If you are under the age of 18, skip this step.

Step #2

Complete the online volunteer application

We also accept applications by mail. If you are unable to apply using the online application OR if you are under the age of 18, please email our Volunteer Coordinator, Lynsey Smith, at lsmith@pawsandthink.org for assistance with our paper application.

When your background check and application have been processed, our New Volunteer Liaison will email you to provide instructions to access our volunteer scheduling and next steps for new volunteers. Please note that it can take up to two weeks for your application to be processed.
