The Concordia Police Department-Animal Control Division is accepting volunteer applications. "Shelter Helper" positions require a background check as well as finger prints. These positions do not include wages or benefits, other than the satisfaction of helping those in need, the animals. There are risks involved when working with animals and workman's comp will not cover Shelter Helpers.
The Shelter Helper positions are to assist the animals in walking on a leash, socialization with other animals in a safe manor, and simple commands. Duties will also include, but not limited to cleaning, feeding, taking pictures and video of the animals for websites, assist with fund raisers, search for and write grants, light maintenance, and other general duties.
We are also accepting fostering applications. You must be a volunteer and pay the $10.00 fee for a foster license, which is renewable on a yearly basis.
If you would like an application for the volunteer Shelter Helper Program or the Foster Program, please stop by the Concordia Police Department and pick one up.
