Mandated Community Service
Court Ordered/Mandated Community Service
At West Valley Humane Society, we offer the opportunity for individuals to fulfill their court-ordered or mandated community service hours. To get started, please review the following important information:
- All community service workers are required to attend an orientation session. Orientation sessions are held every Wednesday at 4:00 pm.
- The 30-minute orientation will count towards your community service hours.
- To attend the orientation, you must be at least 16 years of age. If you are under 18, a parent or guardian must accompany you during the entire orientation, including the completion of paperwork and the facility tour.
- During orientation, you will receive important information about our rules and expectations, and you will be asked to provide the information listed on the form.
- You will also receive a timesheet, which is necessary for tracking your hours.
- Please be aware that community service workers are required to remain on-site at all times.
Rules and Guidelines
- Community service workers are expected to adhere to all the rules and guidelines outlined for the staff at WVHS.
- Please refrain from wearing hats, clothing with drug-related imagery, sweatpants, leggings, pajamas, and open-toed shoes. Closed-toed shoes are mandatory for safety reasons.
- Cellphones are not permitted during your community service hours.
- We will carefully record and verify all your completed hours.
- If you need to schedule your community service hours in advance, please provide us with a 24-hour notice, excluding weekends and holidays.
- Once your community service hours are completed, please submit your timesheet to WVHS staff.
- Authorized staff members will calculate your total hours and provide you with a completion letter.
- Your completed timesheet will be mailed to you within two full business days, excluding weekends and holidays.
