Volunteer

EL Petpals Npo • 099/705 . Please bare with us as our website is still under construction...

Our volunteers work directly with the animals, performing tasks like feeding, bathing and exercising or walking our dogs. Also keeping the kennels clean and sanitary. Other volunteers interact with prospective pet owners, introducing them to pets, helping them fill out adoption forms or providing advice about pet care. You are welcome to stop by antime during visiting hours.

Here are some things you can help us with if you cant come out to the sanctuary:
• Network amongst your neighbours and friends for food or items on our wish list.
• Make phone calls or do other general office work during our fundraisers.
• Making toys, furniture, or dog jerseys for our shelter animals
• Take pictures of new pets and network amongst your friends and co-workers

Reasons to volunteer your time

1. Be part of the solution. You'll join a network of hundreds of thousands of people working to make the world safe and more humane for all living creatures. You'll make the jobs of everyone working for animals a little easier by lending a hand and spreading the message of responsible pet ownership and animal protection.

2. Get warm fuzzies. You'll never find a more grateful and accepting comrade than an animal you've comforted.
3. Keep good company. You'll make lots of new friends—and not just the four-legged kind. Working side by side with people who share similar interests can forge lifelong friendships.

4. Meet the new you. You'll discover skills you never knew you had, and you may be surprised at what you're capable of achieving.

5. Gain a new career. You'll learn things that may lead you to the career—or career change—of your dreams. Employers and college admissions officers look favorably on time spent in volunteer service.

6. Enjoy a wagging tail, a purr, and a smile. Didn't someone once say that the best things in life are free?
