Shelter Volunteers play an integral part in the daily enrichment for the animals in our care. Our small team of volunteers work closely with staff to learn about general animal behaviour and the specialized needs of our current residents. Due to the unique dogs and cats we temporarily home, shelter volunteers must be dedicated long term residents of our community. This allows us for optimal communication between staff and volunteers and gives our animals their best chance at progression through their rehabilitation and training plans.
New spots on our team do not become available often, but if you are interested in becoming a Shelter Volunteer, you can request to be added to the Pupdate mailing list by emailing the coordinator below.
In order to offer the best experience for you and the animals, a regular commitment will be required to stay active as a Shelter Volunteer. The minimum is 1.5 hours per week for six months, but our volunteers often work with us for years
Volunteering your time and energy to work with a non-profit is a great way to give back and get involved in your community. Watching our special animals learn and grow over time is incredibly rewarding and the bonds you form with them will be impactful for you and them.
