UPAWS offers a range of volunteer opportunities to fit different schedules and interests. You can choose from weekly, bi-weekly, or flexible options like fostering or office help. Whether you prefer working directly with our pets, assisting in administrative tasks, helping at fundraisers, or becoming a board member or committee volunteer, there’s something for everyone.
To apply for volunteering at the shelter, you must be at least 18 years old and provide an email address. Please ensure you check your email regularly, including spam, as we only communicate through email.
We onboard new volunteers at the shelter as and when we need them. Once you have completed the application and Online Orientation, you will receive specific opportunities from the Volunteer Coordinator.
