2. Attend orientation - Each volunteer attends a two-hour informational session where we provide an overview of our services, philosophies, and an introduction to our volunteer program.

3. Interview - Prospective volunteers interview one-on-one with a Dumb Friends League representative to discuss volunteer interests and determine the most suitable volunteer assignment.

4. Attend training classes - New volunteers attend multiple trainings throughout a 5-6 week long onboarding process to learn volunteer policies and procedures, shelter safety, and become familiar with League programs and services.
