EARS Volunteer Training Workshops: 2010



EARS volunteers are trained to work in emergency animal shelters and to educate the public about disaster preparedness


Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS) volunteers are the backbone of our efforts to provide lifesaving care and sheltering for animal victims of natural and human-caused disasters. Volunteers come from across the United States and Canada and from all walks of life, but they have one thing in common: a commitment to helping animals in need.

To become an EARS volunteer, you must complete one of our training workshops. During the workshops, participants...

Assess the immediate impact of evacuation
Clarify the scope, focus and role of the EARS program
Assess personal preparedness and experience ways to educate others
Describe how different types of emergency animal shelters may impact a volunteer's decision to deploy
Discuss elements of criminal seizure, puppy mills and hoarding cases
Examine volunteer roles and responsibilities
Imagine what it's like at an emergency response
Review the purpose of the VoluntE.A.R.S. Network Profile and feel situated within the EARS network
Share tips about packing for an emergency response
Inventory emotions to expect and identify available resources to cope
Apply the VoluntE.A.R.S. profile, personal preparedness, deployment steps, and personal decision-making to a mock deployment situation
Place UAN into the larger emergency management system
Recognize common acronyms and collaborative organizations
Hear about the EARS leadership structure
Describe essential procedures, protocols, and policies at a temporary emergency animal shelter
Determine ways to stay active all the time with EARS
Reflect on own readiness and further skills needed and identify next steps.
The workshops are also a unique opportunity to network with other animal advocates.

The workshop registration fee of $60 includes a workbook, an EARS t-shirt to wear while volunteering, a photo ID badge and a certificate of completion.

This seven-hour workshop is designed to be an introduction to emergency animal sheltering and EARS. Participants will be considered trained EARS volunteers. Please be aware that the workshop DOES NOT include animal handling or rescue training. Opportunities for ongoing training and other type of involvement will be discussed. Participants must be age 18 or older.
