The Orangeville & District Animal Centre depends on the warmth, generosity and skills of our volunteers. Our volunteers bring a wealth of skills and experience to our organization and assist us with tasks such as basic animal care, fundraising events, general administrative duties and more.  If you love animals, believe in animal welfare philosophies, and want to help us in our lifesaving efforts, please consider a volunteer opportunity with our Animal Centre!

Please note:  Ontario SCPA requires all volunteers to be 14 years of age or older to participate in our volunteer program
