Training opportunities will be provided only after you complete your probationary status, but may not occur immediately after you complete probation.
The training provided will be based on your desired position and the availability of a trainer.

I understand that with the large amount of abandoned animals it is sometimes necessary for Animal Services staff (but NEVER a volunteer) to euthanize an animal that is sick, injured, or deemed unadoptable.
By submitting this application, I affirm that the facts set forth in it are true and accurate.
You do not need to sign and you do not need to submit the form, as Kern County Animal Services does not accept applications from people under the age of 18.
