You can also attend the orientation before filling out the application, however, attending the orientation does not guarantee you will be approved to volunteer. After the orientation is completed and you are approved to be a volunteer, you will have to complete a LiveScan and apply for a badge, at no cost to you. The final step to becoming a volunteer is shadowing one of our designated Rescue Partners.
