Please join PurposeFull Paws for our Volunteer Introduction Class this Saturday- July 9, 2016 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm at our Training Center in Martinsburg.  We need volunteers for many positions- puppy raiser families, weekend puppy helpers, grant writers, admin assistance, advertising assistance and we are always looking for help with manual labor- cleaning, errands etc., etc.

The first part of our class will be an introduction to PurposeFull Paws, our staff and current volunteers.  We will explain who we are and what we do.  You will get to meet some of our dogs and find out about how we operate.  Anyone wishing to volunteer in any capacity will need to attend this part of the class.  The second part of the class will cover the information on becoming a puppy raiser family – or working in any capacity of training our dogs.   After taking this class- you will be ready to begin hands on training for your position.

Anyone is welcome to attend.  Any children under the age of 16 will need to come with a parent to both the class and any volunteer opportunities.  Any child between the age of 16-18 will need a parent to sign the volunteer contract, also.  We welcome anyone in the community to attend – even if they are only interested in learning about PurposeFull Paws and the services that we offer.

Please join us at 219 Lawn St., Martinsburg, WV 25401- when on Lawn St. – go back almost to the dead end- turn left in front of the large yellow warehouse building- parking is in the rear of the building.
