The orientation session is approximately three hours long and provides information about KPETS’ mission, services, what the expectations are for the pet and handlers, and what to expect when you go on visits.

An non-refundable application fee of $35 per handler is charged to cover administrative costs, including handouts and insurance coverage for the group and visit evaluations.

Younger volunteers under 18 may become a Registered Junior Handler. The parent must be a registered KPETS Team with the same pet. Junior handlers will need a letter of recommendation from a professional trainer or other KPETS volunteer. This will need to be forwarded to KPETS for pre-approval prior to registering for a Group Evaluation. The junior handler must complete the entire registration process.
