Volunteer

To Get Involved:

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the SPHS to give your time and love to the animals in our care.  We rely on our wonderful volunteers to help with many aspects of our shelter operations.  Our volunteers make such a difference by enriching the animals’ time at the shelter and helping to place them in new homes.

Please note that all in-shelter volunteers (this does not include Events or Community Programs) are expected to commit for a minimum of six (6) months due to the amount of training involved.

Please read the role descriptions below. If you feel you are a good fit, please fill out our Volunteer Application and send a scanned copy via email to our Stratford Centre Manager at chris.jones@kwsphumane.ca.

Please include in the email which days/times you would be available.

Thank you for your interest in our volunteer program!
