Court-Ordered Community Service

We would be glad to accommodate you if you would like to do your court-ordered community service with us. Please read the following rules carefully, and contact info@petsalive.org with any questions.

Our program is structured so that court-ordered Community Service Volunteers assist in various tasks that help the shelter run efficiently. These tasks include but are not limited to weed whacking, fence painting, washing dishes, managing laundry, and cleaning crates

Court Ordered Community Service Policy

  • Anyone wishing to do their court-ordered community service at Pets Alive must first complete our online application.
  • Community Service Volunteers must sign up for shifts to complete their required hours. We cannot accommodate Community Service Volunteers that are not scheduled for a community service shift. The Volunteer must complete at least one shift every week until the Volunteer completes the community service hours.
  • Court-ordered community service volunteers who spend time texting, using cell phones, causing disruptions, or otherwise unproductive will not have their hours verified.
  • Court-ordered community service volunteers who schedule a shift must email or call if they cannot make the shift.
  • Court-ordered community service volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult over 21 while performing their community service with us.
  • All Community Service Volunteers must provide a valid ID so a copy can be kept in their file.
  • Pets Alive will supply a letter to the relevant court or probation officer indicating the number of completed hours. Requests for letters must be made 2-3 days in advance.

We cannot accommodate sex offenders due to a large number of children in our volunteer ranks.
