Becoming a Nomad Volunteer

The process to become a volunteer includes the following steps:

  • All volunteers must:

    • Submit a Volunteer Application, found here

      • The Nomad Volunteer Coordinator will call the references you give us with a few basic questions; please let them know to expect a call​

    • Attend a volunteer orientation event, which you can sign up for here

      • The orientation is a broad overview of how things work, including meeting other volunteers and setting up needed app(s) on your phone​

      • The orientation can be done in person (within Auburn), or virtually

    • Sign and return the Volunteer Contract (note, this is different from the Application)​

  • Volunteers who want to care for Nomad pets directly also have these steps in their process:​​

    • The Volunteer Coordinator will perform a background check​ (this is explained in more detail in the Application)

    • If you wish to foster a pet,

      • The Volunteer Coordinator will need to visit your home and meet every resident; this is a very quick process, usually no more than 30 minutes

      • Sign and return the Foster Contract

      • Send the Volunteer Coordinator proof that all resident pets are up to date on their core vaccines​
