Share your talent, skill and passion for the animals. Volunteer for PAWS. 

WHEN: February 6, 2016 (Saturday), 10:00 AM - 1:30 PM 
WHERE: PAWS Animal Rehabilitation Center (PARC), Aurora Blvd. Katipunan Valley, Loyola Heights Quezon City. 

1. Please hand carry your accomplished volunteer application form to the PARC (during office hours of 10am-12nn, 1pm-5pm, Mon to Sat except holidays), ON OR BEFORE JANUARY 30. 

By personally submitting your volunteer application form to us, you will a) know where PARC is so you won't get lost or be late on the day of the orientation, b) be reminded of the things to bring at the orientation by our office personnel who will be accepting your application, and c) you can see what assignment can best suit you. 

Only interested volunteers who live outside Metro Manila may send their volunteer application forms through courier or snail mail to: 

Philippine Animal Welfare Society 
87 Small Horseshoe Drive, 
Horseshoe Village, 
New Manila, Quezon City 1112 
(NOTE: This is only a mailing address so please make sure it reaches us BEFORE January 30.) 

Please download and print the volunteer application form (http://www.paws.org.ph/uploads/2/1/2/7/21275318/volunteer_application_form%282%29.pdf) on 1 sheet of paper only (back to back) as we are saving on filing space. 

Please do not email or fax your volunteer application forms -- these will not be accepted. 

2. Please bring P50 for the photocopied materials on the day of the orientation. 

3. Please bring 1 tall can of cat food or dog food as a donation for our shelter animals ("orientation fee") on the day of the orientation. 

4. Please bring your own snack and/or drinking water as there are no food stores in the area. 

5. PLEASE BE ON TIME. Those who come in late (after 10am) and leave early (before 1:30pm) for the orientation shall be asked to attend the next orientation so that they get complete information on the policies for volunteers and Shelter rules. 

Volunteers must be prepared to render at least eight (8) hours a month doing work at the shelter or outside the shelter for animal welfare to be in our active volunteer database. Those who will not be able to render 8 hours of volunteer work a month need not apply as volunteers. They can be Supporting Members instead and click on the monthly donation button at http://www.paws.org.ph/be-a-supporting-member.html. Supporting members are also considered active volunteers and receive monthly updates from PAWS via e-mail. Please consider being a Supporting Member. Supporting members give monthly financial support to help keep the shelter running.

For those asking for a PAWS in their province or area, please read the FAQ on PAWS branches: http://www.paws.org.ph/are-there-paws-branches.html 

For those who cannot attend the upcoming orientation but would still want to volunteer, please read: http://pawsphilippines.weebly.com/volunteer-how-do-i-become-a-paws-volunteer--im-not-from-manila-how-can-i-volunteer--can-kids-volunteer.html 

For further questions, please read the above links and check the FAQs before posting or before emailing. By doing so, you are being PROACTIVE (a quality we look for in a volunteer) and actually help us help the animals by enabling us to attend to more urgent concerns instead of answering questions that may have already been posted. 

Thank you for wanting to help us in our work for the animals.
