Our volunteers are our lifeblood.  Without them we would not be able to manage all the tasks necessary to keep PAWS running smoothly.  Whether you want to work hands-on with animals, assist with fundraising, use your skills as a graphic artist, or delve into the intricacies of accounting we can use your assistance!

Here are some of the opportunities we have available.  If you don’t see something that fits your particular skill set please contact us at 1-416-520-7995 or by e-mailing info@pawscanada.org.  We love discussing ways you can help our animals!

Fundraising – Like all charities we must rely on money to rescue and care for our animals.  Raising much-needed funds is an ongoing task and we are always looking for people with original ideas and fundraising experience to help us achieve our goal of NO MORE HOMELESS ANIMALS.  We would love someone to take on the position of Fundraising Coordinator but also need volunteers to help with our various fundraising events throughout the year.

Professional Services – Many businesses volunteer their services to help PAWS to help animals in need.  Do you have something to offer?  Terrific – please contact PAWS today!

Cat Care – We need reliable, cat-loving individuals to commit to a regularly scheduled shift at our shelter.  This may involve scooping cat litters, medicating cats, general clean-up and laundry.  And there will always be a chance to spend some time grooming, cuddling and playing with the cats!

Drivers – We desperately need drivers on a regular basis to help take cats to their vet appointments or to foster homes as well as to help out when we have special events.

Administration – We always need volunteers to help with mail-outs, envelope stuffing and the nuts and bolts of running a charity.  If you’re comfortable around large piles of paper then we definitely have a spot for you!

Newsletter – Would you be interested in being our Newsletter Editor?  We need someone to ensure our newsletters get out on a timely basis with a professional look and informative content.  You would be working closely with our President to ensure the right information is getting to our supporters.

Donation Boxes – PAWS is in the process of putting donation boxes in as many businesses as we can to raise our profile and our bank account (resulting in that many more lives saved)!  Would you like to coordinate this effort?  If so please contact us ASAP.  We also need people who can build or donate the boxes as well as people to monitor the donation boxes in their area.

Postering/Distributing Brochures – Occasionally we need volunteers to canvas their neighbourhoods with brochures or posters.  This is a great way to meet your neighbours and get some exercise in the great outdoors while making a difference for homeless animals!

Graphic Design – We are always looking for people to help us design our posters, brochures and newsletters.  Please volunteer your design skills to help our animals!
