|The OHS relies on about 800 volunteers.|
It turns out OHS volunteers are a pretty happy bunch. Last year, 87 per cent rated their overall volunteer experience as either very good or excellent. A whopping 92 per cent felt they were "always" or "usually" supported by the staff they work with. Close to the same percentage of volunteers felt they were usually or always appreciated.
|Canine enrichment volunteers walk dogs, offer enrichment |
and encourage basic obedience.
|Brightening Lives volunteers bring joy to the |
community through companion animal visits.
Of course, not all our positions are as sought-after as others. In particular, finding experienced candidates for canine enrichment, Brightening Lives Animal Visits, grooming and outreach canvassing to promote our Mobile Spay Neuter Services Program has proven to be a challenge. And maintaining enough foster families to care for animals in their homes means there is almost always a need, especially in the summer months.
If you want to join the happy group of often unsung heroes that are changing the lives of animals and people in our community, check out all of the positions available.
