For individuals who are interested in becoming more involved in our work, The Fur-Bearers offers two classes of membership: voting and non-voting.

Voting Member

To be eligible to be a voting member, an individual must complete a minimum number of ten annual volunteer hours. After completing the minimum number of volunteer hours, an individual is eligible to apply to the board in writing to become a voting member. An application for voting membership can be found here voting_member.pdf. Along with the application, prospective voting members must include payment of the $100 annual membership fee.

After an application for voting membership is submitted, it will be brought before the board for consideration. The board may accept, postpone, or refuse an application for voting membership.

Once accepted, to maintain their membership, voting members are required to pay an annual membership fee of $100 when due and payable.

Please note: both the number of required volunteer hours for eligibility and the annual membership fee are set by the board and are subject to change. You can email your application to info@thefurbearers.com.
