Volunteers must be 18 years of age. Please look over the form and be sure you have checked all areas in which you have an interest.
The Capital Area Animal Welfare Society is a nonprofit, all-volunteer humane organization serving the Baton Rouge community since 1979.
Without volunteers, CAAWS animals would not have a second chance at life. It is very important that you volunteer in the areas of most interest to you. Please take your time to carefully review the brief descriptions of our programs. Check the ones that you feel will give you the best opportunity to contribute to CAAWS and will make your life fuller and richer.
Volunteers will receive instructions and training before participating in all of our programs.
The Volunteer Coordinator will contact you for orientation and assignment as soon as possible. Please be patient with this process, as the volunteer coordinator is also a volunteer who works full-time. CAAWS receives numerous applications and contacting every applicant can occasionally take weeks. We do need your help!
Most of the positions at CAAWS require a weekly commitment. If you do not have time for a weekly commitment, we can put you on a contact list to help with special events, such as the CAAWS Mystic Krewe of Mutts Mardi Gras Dog Parade or other fund-raisers.
I am interested in helping on a weekly basis on the following days (please indicate AM and/or PM)
As a CAAWS volunteer, I agree to acquaint myself with CAAWS policies and to abide by them at all times. I am aware of any risks associated with this volunteer activity, and I agree that CAAWS will not be responsible for any injury or damage to my person or property while I am engaged in volunteer duties for
CAAWS. I understand that CAAWS may terminate my volunteer services at any time for any reason.
