How You Can Help


Volunteers are an important part of our organization! The animals in our care need socialization and enrichment, and volunteers step in to meet that need.

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

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, spay/neuter surgery, or providing supplies. Our annual expenses for animal care exceed $100,000. Small or large, every donation makes a difference in an animal's life.

Fostering is THE most rewarding volunteer experience the shelter has to offer. We are always looking for people to foster - from kittens, puppies, animals needing socialization, or even just long-term shelter pets who need a break from the shelter environment. If you have room in your heart & home, please submit your foster application.
