FAQ Friday 1: Can I volunteer at The Animal Store?

Yes, we have a volunteer program at The Animal Store called the Jr. Critter Crew. Here are a few facts:

  • You must be at least 11 years old to be a volunteer.
  • If you are between 11 and 17 years old, you must come in with a parent or guardian to learn about being a volunteer, sign a waiver, and get a tour of the store.
  • A volunteer’s primary responsibility is to socialize the birds. You will:

– Learn about their habits, food and care.
– Hold, play with, and carry them around the store to get them used to people.
– Show them to interested customers.

  • Sometimes volunteers work with other small animals to socialize them.

If you love animals, want to play with them, and are kind and responsible, then you might be a perfect person to join the Jr. Critter Crew. Fill out the form on our home page for more information.
