Volunteer orientation

Volunteers are critical to the success of the shelter. Our volunteer team is comprised of scores of animal lovers who are committed to improving the lives of animals in our community.

The volunteer program at Everett Animal Shelter (EAS) is highly structured and is geared toward finding volunteers who are a great fit in helping us meet the needs of the animals in our care. All volunteers who work in the shelter must meet the Essential Job Requirements (PDF). And must make the commitment.

Orientations are held at the shelter: 333 Smith Island Road, Everett, WA. There is no pre-registration and there is no paperwork to complete before the orientation. Just show up!

All volunteers must pass a Washington State Patrol background check; paperwork for the background check is completed during orientation.

Due to COVID-19, orientations have been cancelled until further notice, we apologize for the inconvenience. Please watch this site for upcoming dates, we will post them as soon as we can. Thank you!
