We’ve been working hard on coordinating our volunteer program for both animal care locations. At the same time we are enhancing our orientation and expanding training opportunities. More information on our program, including an online interest form and details about our orientation and training processes will be posted on this page soon. In the meantime, if you are interested in learning about our program, please email volunteer @ bcspca.org.
- Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age to work independently after completing orientation and required training.
- Individuals between the ages of 13 and 17 are invited to volunteer as long as accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Both the minor and guardian must complete orientation and required training in order to participate.
- Volunteers must be able to commit to a minimum of eight hours per month for a minimum of six months.
Due to the extensive training requirements of our traditional volunteer program, we are not able to accept short-term volunteers or group projects. Other arrangements may be possible for short term projects outside of our traditional program (not involving direct animal interaction), with the permission of the Volunteer Manager.
