PAWS Volunteer Orientation

Welcome! We are so excited to meet you and orient you with our People and Animals who Serve, Anne Arundel County, INC - PAWS program. 

Please allot approximately one hour for our Orientation Program (In person and Zoom opportunities monthly).  We will present you with all the information you need to get started on your journey with our PAWS program.

Prior to completing an application, please know our basic requirements;

  • Pets must be at least one year old and have been in your care for at least 6 months.  

  • You must have a valid Anne Arundel County Animal Control License for your pet. https://www.aacounty.org/departments/animal-control/forms-and-publications/AnimalLicense.pdf

  • Your pet must be examined annually by your vet, have up-to-date vaccinations as well as a negative fecal test.  Please submit the PAWS health record form signed by your vet to our program annually. Don't forget to ask your Vet about the PAWS/Veterinary Discount program.

  • Complete and onsite pet evaluation. PAWS team members will meet with you and your dog to complete basic testing to ensure you have good control of your animal and that they are suited for pet therapy visitation with our program.  The testing is based on the AKC Good Citizen Test.  You can review the 10 exercises here: https://www.akc.org/expert-advice/training/essential-skills-for-every-dog/

  • We request our volunteers to commit to visiting a minimum of 1 hour per week on average for at least 1 year. Consistency in volunteering is important for you, your pets, the facilities, and populations we serve.
