i-CARE* Volunteer Training Program @ AAF


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 dogs overcome particular issues that may be keeping a dog from getting adopted; 
  • provide individualized 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; 
  • may be asked to do a limited amount outside reading that supports the hands-on work we are doing; 
  • be in sessions facilitated by animal trainer, Eileen Udry, Ph.D. along with co-trainers, Kara M. and Sara S.


The Spring 2014 i-CARE 9-week session will be offered at the following times: 

Group A:                       Mondays             1:30- 4:00 pm  (3/24-5/19)

Group B:                       Tuesdays            4 pm - 6:00 pm (3/25-5/20)

Group C:                       Thursdays          1:30- 4:00 pm  (3/27-5/22)

Group D:                       Fridays                1:30- 4:00 pm  (3/28-5/23)

Group E:                       Saturdays           1:30- 4:00 pm  (3/29-5/24)

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) 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 :)  


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 several months. Ouch! But on the plus side, we know that the dogs love you for it!!

Registration is open to 5 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://icare4dogsataaf.eventbrite.com/. Once you submit the registration form you'll receive a confirmation email letting you know your registration has been received.
