Does the Hammond animal shelter in Louisiana let 11 year olds volunteer there?
I dont think it would being as the child labor laws state you have to be atleast 14 years old.

12-year-olds can sometimes volunteer . Depending on what animal shelter you want to volunteer at depends if they allow 12-year old volunteers. Most animal shelters will all…ow only 16 year olds and older because of insurance and health reasons. However, the youngest age I've seen be able to volunteer at an animal shelter is 14 years old. Again, it's different at every animal shelter and this is ONLY from my experience.but yes 12 year olds can help out
Try volunteering by walking dogs/cats, adopting, or feeding them.For more information, contact your local animal shelter or veterinarian office. . I too, would greatly enjoy …working amongst animals. I have recently been researching working as a veterinary nurse or zookeeper. Even though the pay isn't great, the actual work is far more enjoyable than office work! Like the above contributor states, local animal shelter or rescues are great option as not only do they increase your feel-good factor but they look great on your CV as a veterinarian or like-wise!
In some of them, you can. But not like the Humane Society though. You have to be eighteen to volunteer there. But if you find just some plain old animal shelter, I am very sur…e you can volunteer there. Hope This Helps!!! :). Also if a animal shelter has a cat room kids can volunteer there if there is an adult supervisor but to volunteer with dogs you have to be 18. This is in most animal shelters
At certain shelters yes you can, I am glad you are looking into it! Volunteering at an animal shelter is the best volunteer work anyone can do!
Yes, just call the shelter and see if they have a volunteer program and see how old you have to be. I have seen quite a few animal shelter accept 11 year olds.
I'm pretty sure you can, I'm 11 year old and I'm planning on volunteering at my local vets office this summer I'm also planning on babysitting after I get my license this year….
I don't think so, or else I would have by now (I'm eleven too).
it all depends on the shelter or rescue
As part of a local volunteer group, probably yes. (In America) Why not go to or call your local animal shelter to verify? sorry but in most states u need to be 16 or older to …do any volunteer work Well then I guess the laws have changed: when I was 11 years old, I was in Boy Scouts of America & the local animal shelter let us help out (as a group, not individually) yes ur right about that as a group but hey i think if the 11 yr old wants to help and volunteer there time that's great i wish them the best and give them a high five
anyone can volunteer:]
sometimes people let them
will you can volunteer at any animal shelter but you have to have a parent/guardian with you to fill out paper works and when you vvolunteer
I think when it comes to being a volunteer at 11 yrs old, I'd try Best Friends Shelter.
you could try a local ASPCA! i started volunteering a couple of years ago when i was 13 i believe. I'm fairly sure an 11 y/o would be able to volunteer as long as they were un…der supervision of their parent or guardian.
