i-CARE* Program: Making Life Click for Shelter Dogs!

 What?

The i-CARE (i-CARE= individualized canine adoption readiness and enrichment) program is a special program at Animal Adoption Foundation (AAF) for highly committed volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of AAF's dogs. Specifically, volunteers (aka "CAREgivers)  will:

  • help teach AAF dogs valuable "life skills" that will improve dogs' adoptability; this will include teaching dogs a set of core "obedience" and "life" skills; 
  • help a individual dog overcome particular issues that may be keeping that dog from getting adopted; 
  • provide enrichment & important social contact for AAF's dogs; 
  • partcipate in sessions that are structured and involve working other volunteers; thus, a willingness to work with others is assumed; 
  • be in sessions facilitated by animal trainer, Eileen U., Ph.D. and/or Senior Intern, Sara S.

When?

The 2017 i-CARE  sessions will be offered at the following times: 

Group A:             Mondays            1:30- 4:00 pm

Group B:             Tuesdays           5 pm - 7:00 pm

Group C:             Wednesdays      5 pm - 7:00 pm (facilitated by Sara S)

Group D:             Thursdays          1:30- 4:00 pm

Group E               Fridays               1:30- 4:00 pm

Group F:              Saturdays           1:30- 4:00 pm

 

Note: The year is divided into "quarters" (Jan-March, April-June, July-Sept, Oct.-Dec). Please be advised that when you sign-up for a quarter, you are committing to a 3-month block of time, one day/week. 

 

You choose the day of the week that you are most regularly available (i.e., you don't have to be available during ALL the session times noted above; you simply choose which "group" -or groups- that best suite your schedule. Volunteers should be able to attend at least 80% sessions for reasons of safety and continuity of skill development. Please do not sign-up if making this commitment is not realistic for you (as the AAF shelter dogs will be terribly disappointed :)  

Who?

To be eligible for this program volunteers: 

  • must have completed AAF's CARE Level 3 training by the start of the session you sign up for; 
  • should be able to attend at least 80% or more of the sessions; and, 
  • must have a love of dogs and be open to the lessons they teach us! 

How Do I Say "Yes!"?

This program is different than many other volunteer opportunities at AAF because it asks volunteers to sign-up in advance and for a commitment that spans 8-12 weeks. On the plus side, we know that the dogs love you for it and benefit from your involvement!!

Registration is open to 6 volunteers/session or until 48 hours in advance of the program, whichever comes first. A minimum of 2 people must be signed up for a group or that offering will not be held. If a group is cancelled due to low enrollment, those who have signed up will be notified.  

To sign-up for an i-CARE group(s): Use the ""Register" button at the top of this page (or go to: http://icarefordogsataaf.eventbrite.com/. Once you submit the registration form you'll receive a confirmation email letting you know your registration has been received.
