Thank you so much for your interest in our volunteer program!
To be eligible to volunteer for the DCHS, you must be 16 years of age and go through these few simple steps:
- Call us at (715) 232-9790 and register to attend our next animal socialization class (typically 1 hour). This class is required for any animal interaction.
- Attend the class and pay the class fee of $20. The class fee for active students at any school in Dunn County is only $15. At the end of the class you may choose to continue on with the process. If you choose not to, you will still receive a DCHS t-shirt.
- If you choose to continue with the process, you would need to fill out a volunteer application.
Once your application is approved, you may begin volunteering!
The process is designed so that you completely understand what volunteering entails before committing to it. If you decide it isn’t for you, the least you will receive is a great class on animal socialization and a DCHS t-shirt!
Thanks again for you interest, volunteers are a great way for you to share your best gifts with the community!
