Volunteering at Best Friends During The Event
Essential Documentation for You to Complete – Your Best Friends Volunteer Profile
Everyone attending the Best Friends Event as part of the PPG Group MUST establish a volunteer profile with Best Friends by completing their volunteer process. This will enable you to go onto the sanctuary grounds and interact with the animals. If you do not establish a volunteer profile you will not be allowed onto Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. An additional benefit for you of establishing a volunteer profile is that during our workshop you will be allowed to sign up for additional working volunteer groups or working training groups. These are highly sought after positions so this is a great benefit for workshop attendees. There are no exceptions to this policy.
To create a volunteer profile use this link here . The system will have you create a profile, read and sign off on the safety guidelines, electronically sign the volunteer agreement (waiver), and watch the online orientation video. If you have previously volunteered at the sanctuary and have an existing account then you do not need to create a new one.
Pre-& Post Event Volunteering
For event attendees that wish to volunteer before or after the PPG workshop you can also use the self-scheduling tool. Once your volunteer account is complete the system will walk you through completing your schedule.
To create a schedule enter your volunteer dates and select a required 15 minute Welcome Center volunteer check-in, then choose volunteer shifts in your preferred animal area .
Each animal area has a specific number of volunteer openings for example Horse Haven has 4 volunteer openings per shift while Downtown has 35. The self-scheduling calendar will list the current availability for each animal area. Once the volunteer schedule is complete you can email it to yourself or a friend and add and delete shifts or change animal areas based on availability.
