Training/Orientation for current and interested volunteers for our Pit Bull shelter training program.
Have you ever thought about volunteering for Chako's Pit Bull University? If you are seriously interested in volunteering at the city or county shelter as part of Chako's "Pit Bull U" program, join us at this orientation and training session at the County Shelter (thank you to the County Shelter for making their training room available to us!).
The training is estimated to last 2 to 2.5 hours.
Open to both current volunteers who need training refresher and new people who are thinking about volunteering.
Why volunteer? Help make shelter Pit Bulls more adoptable by working on their basic manners, getting them out of their kennels and helping to combat kennel stress, and giving them some play time. Each of our Pit Bull candidates gets a sign on their kennel to catch the eye of potential adopters, which helps the dogs get more exposure and get adopted more quickly (and often avoid becoming a shelter statistic).
Chako offers this program FREE to both the Sacramento city and county shelters -- all for the dogs! And we can't do it without YOU! Volunteers who generously donate their time to help the dogs at the shelter.
(No outside dogs are allowed inside the shelter, FYI - it goes without saying, but I figure I'd say it anyway!)
What to bring/wear: casual clothes that you don't mind getting dog hair and slobber on, sensible, closed-toed shoes appropriate for working in a shelter environment, pen and notepad.
This has limited space so please remember to change your RSVP if you first sign up and later realize you cannot make it.
