How old do you have to be in order to volunteer at a pet store or shelter?
you can ether get in or help by being 16 or if your younger and the owner is nice you can be a little younger

I think you can be any age, but you might want to call the animal shelter just to make sure. you really have to be 16 to volunteer with out an adult
It totally depends on the animal shelter itself. Some say 14, others say 16, still others, I'm sure, say 18. Contact your local shelter and ask if they would allow you to volu…nteer there.
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
You have to be at least 16 to volunteer at an animal shelter.. You have to be at least 16 to volunteer at an animal shelter.
call the shelter that you want to work at and they will be able to tell you. it is different for all shelters.

No you cant be eleven and work in a pet store.They sent me away (im twelve) but the lady in the flower shop said she would pay me and i could help in the back but its not a fu…ll time thing and i only got 30$ but it could happen. Try little buisness work your way up!=]
some times you might have to be at least 13 or 14 years old! it also depends on where you live.

Sometimes. Most will only take 16 year old people, and the lowest I've heard about is 14 years old.
probably about 14,15 but that's just a guess

The age groups are diffferent for each shelter, but the general answer is 15 without an adult, and 12 but with an adult

You would have to check with your local animal shelters to see the age at which you can volunteer. It's good to volunteer in your community, so ask!
Definately you should adopt from a shelter. There are so manyanimals dying in shelters because people buy from breeders. Mostpet stores get there dogs from "puppy mills" which… are horrificmass breeding facilities.
