We believe that the volunteer relationship is built on trust and mutual understanding.

This agreement sets out:

  • suggested start and end dates

  • the expectations from you as a volunteer

As a volunteer we ask that you:

  • Work in partnership with staff and volunteers to make society a better place for our beneficiaries.
  • Let your volunteer manager know if you are having any problems or if you have any complaints, concerns or feedback.
  • Meet agreed time commitments and give reasonable notice when you’re not available so that arrangements can be made.

In return, we will:

  • Introduce you to how our organization works and your role within it.
  • Give information about Paws 4 Success' work, policies and procedures.

  • Reimburse agreed expenses.
