- People coming and wanting to play happens whether they are volunteers or paid employees. Nobody wants to clean up animal waste, pick up trash, prepare foodMessage 1 of 8 , Nov 28, 2007View SourcePeople coming and wanting to play happens whether they are volunteers or paid employees. Nobody wants to clean up animal waste, pick up trash, prepare food etc.
It may seem harsh but I would have them sign a contract and breaking the rules of the contract are immediate dismissal. I would also make sure that the harder they work the better the incentive such as scheduled play time. Increased privileges, excursions etc. After all humans are animals that can be trained and require proper enrichment.----- Original Message ----

I agree with what you said. Commitment to the animals
must come first and foremost. I have been resonable
with our volunteers pertaining to their school,jobs,
etc. understanding that a volunteer is just that, a
volunteer who gives what time they have. It is just a
problem when they do volunteer that they think they
can come play and not work.
