Court Appointed Community Service Program
Humane Animal Rescue (HAR) strives to maintain a safe working environment for our animals, staff and volunteers.
The HAR Court Appointed Community Service Program provides opportunities for people 18 years of age and older to complete Court Appointed community service (a stipulation set forth by a judge). Community service opportunities are available 7 days a week at our centers. These individuals assist employees with duties at our centers such as cleaning cages, washing dishes, shredding newspaper, laundry, maintenance and other duties as assigned. Community Service workers do not directly work with animals.
Information regarding the individual’s offense must be submitted to the Volunteer Coordinator, along with the request for community service assignment. Contact information for the individual’s probation officer or other court designee must be provided prior to beginning the assignment.
Only misdemeanor offenses will be accepted. In cases involving illegal drugs, animal cruelty, child abuse, assault, sexual offenses, or theft, requests will be denied. In cases when information regarding the individual’s offense is not made available to the appropriate Volunteer Coordinator, the request will be denied.
Community Service Policies:
- Court Appointed Community Service grants the individual the ability to complete community service hours, not to become a regular volunteer.
- One no-call / no-show will result in automatic termination from the program.
- Tardiness is unacceptable and will result in termination.
- Individuals must arrive fifteen (15) minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
- A name badge must be worn at all times.
- Breaks must be coordinated with the on-site Supervisor.
- Community Service individuals must adhere to all Humane Animal Rescue standard policies and procedures.
Community Service locations and shifts vary
Shifts are scheduled on a first-come-first-served basis and are non-negotiable.
