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 you want more information or would like a Volunteer Application emailed to you, please contact admin@spcaanimalrescue.com or call 642-0920 ext. 3.

You can also pick up an application at the shelter from Wednesday to Saturday from 11:00 – 5:00.
