How You Can Help

 Volunteer

After much anticipation our volunteer program is up and running! Volunteers provide vital support and assistance to staff and shelter animals by fullfilling the animal's need for additional exercise and socialization. 

Committee and Board members are also volunteer positions that are selected from our membership.

If you are interested in sharing your time or skill, please email your completed volunteer application to ssmhsinfo@shaw.ca

 Donate

As a registered charity with Revenue Canada, all donations are tax deductible. ALL donations go directly to the animals in our care - whether it is for medical care due to injury or illness, or for spay & neuter to increase their chance for adoption. Our annual expenses for animal care exceed $100,000. Small or large, every donation makes a difference in an animal's life.

It also provides the shelter with a base of supporters that help us with our fundraising and awareness activities.

 Foster

Fostering is THE most rewarding volunteer experience the shelter has to offer. We are always looking for families to foster litters of puppies and kittens - both orphaned and with Moms. We also require homes for socialization and/or healing. If you have room in your heart & home, please submit your foster application.
