The annual NVADG New Volunteer training is scheduled and the Registration Application is available. Here is information about it, and some thoughts about being a NVADG volunteer.
Please complete your Registration/Application prior to attending. This is vital so we have a correct headcount for materials.

Location: Marsh Jr High School, 2253 Humboldt Rd, Chico

- Training is free.
- There is a $57 cost for the Live Scan for your background check. The Live Scan will be done at training and paid directly to the Live Scan service. Cash, check, credit card, Venmo. The Live Scan and background check is unique for every organization. Even if you’ve passed with other organizations, Butte County requires NVADG do its own Live Scan and background check for you.
- You’ll be asked to buy a uniform T-shirt for $20. Other attire available. Cash, check, PayPal. Note: PayPal accepts credit cards, you don’t need to have a PayPal account to utilize it. The uniform attire will be available at training, and payment is due at that time.
Lunch: Plan to bring your lunch or grab a quick bite nearby.
Saturday Dinner: With luck, we’ll put together a big group dinner for Saturday night for new and existing volunteers! You can meet fellow volunteers and probably hear tales about animals saved and friends acquired. We will ask for a small payment to cover the cost of the food. Watch for more info on this!
