Volunteer and make a difference……one animal at a time!

Shelter volunteer’s work closely with our Animal Care staff to help make sure the 5 freedoms can be met at all times.  The volunteers assist with activities including dog walking, dog training, cat wellness, rabbit and small animal care, special events, fundraising, advocacy and so much more.

Small Animals (Junior* / Adults) takes place between 8:30 – 11:00. Tasks include, cleaning and tidying cat runs/kennels, providing exercise and play time and assisting with laundry needs. These jobs are very important as they help maintain a clean living environment for all our animals.  There is also time to socialize and spend time with the animals.  Volunteers are asked to commit to regular hours/day(s) where possible.

Dog Walking (Adults only) takes place between 7:45am – 12pm and 3:30pm – 6pm.  In the summer months the afternoon walks may be restricted to the property around the shelter due to the heat.  Dog walkers are required to be 18 years or older, must complete a training session with a staff member and when available, training session with our dog trainer.

Volunteers are a highly valued resource to our society and make a tremendous difference to the lives of so many animals.

*Please note: Junior Volunteers must be 14 years or older to apply
