Interested in Volunteering?
The Saint John SPCA Animal Rescue could not accomplish what it does without the help of people like you. In every capacity our volunteers are a valuable resource; people make a very big difference in the lives of many animals.
We appreciate your help…and the animals do too! We share the belief in this quote from Anatole France: “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened”.
All potential volunteers are asked to complete our Volunteer Application Form including a Police Record Check and attend a two-hour orientation session at the shelter.
If interested in becoming a pet foster volunteer, please contact the shelter at 642-0920 ext. 1 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also pick up an application at the shelter from Wednesday to Saturday from 11:00 – 5:00.
