Make a difference one animal at a time - Volunteer

The BC SPCA operates with the assistance of over 4,000 volunteers who work at the shelter level and in a variety of fundraising, advocacy and education roles. These critical individuals assist our branches through activities such as dog walking, cat wellness, rabbit and small animal care, administrative support, special events, fundraising, education, volunteer coordination, fostering, advocacy, and so much more.

They may be called volunteers but to our staff and animals, they are heroes. In every capacity they serve, volunteers are a highly valued resource to our society and are making a very real difference to the lives of so many animals - Volunteer!
