BC SPCA Wild ARC – Volunteer Opportunities

Ever wanted to work hands-on with wildlife and make a difference in the lives of individual animals? This is the opportunity you have been waiting for!

Over 150 volunteers are needed each week to care for our wild patients. We provide both classroom and hands-on training for those willing to commit to a 4-hour weekly shift.

Alternatively, you may know someone who loves wildlife (from a distance) and wants to volunteer helping to cook and clean for our animals, reach out to local communities, transport wildlife to our centre, or lend us their fix-it skills – we have volunteer opportunities for them too!

The majority of animal care activity occurs in April and October each year, and training takes place in early spring to prepare for our busy baby season. Interested in finding out more? Orientation sessions are a great way to learn about our volunteer opportunities without making a firm commitment. Visit http://www.spca.bc.ca/branches/wild-arc/  and click on the Volunteer tab to register!
