Do you want to volunteer helping furry friends of all shapes and sizes? Whether you are an eager student looking for veterinary experience, someone who would like to get to know different animals before choosing a pet, or simply an animal enthusiast—finding a volunteer position supporting animals can be easy!


Toronto Cat Rescue

The name says it all—Toronto Cat Rescue takes in cats that are ill, orphaned, geriatric, or who do not thrive in the shelter environment. They prepare cats for adoption so that they can find their forever home and stay out of the shelter system permanently. They often have openings for volunteers to help with adoption administration or counselling, drivers, and in their store.


Action Volunteers for Animals

Action Volunteers for Animals works with the community to improve the lives of feral, stray, and companion animals. They are 100% volunteer run and always on the lookout for fosters to care for animals before permanent adoption. Aside from fostering they have a wide variety of volunteer positions, from lending a hand in their adoption centre to community outreach, or even doing research from home.


Cat Busters Animal Rescue

Cat Busters Animal Rescue (CBAR) is a grassroots rescue organization that looks to rescue, rehabilitate, foster, and re-home companion animals. They don’t have a shelter, so all rescued pets are housed in foster homes. Cat Busters often need help with their adoption days and fundraising as well as drivers and even craft making.


Toronto Wildlife Centre

The Toronto Wildlife Centre is a non-profit organization that provides medical treatment and rehabilitative care to sick, injured, and orphaned wild animals found by members of the public. They have many different opportunities, from educational assistants and wildlife care to general support.


Toronto Humane Society

Last but certainly not least, The Toronto Humane Society promotes the care and protection of all animals and aims to prevent cruelty and suffering. Their popularity as a volunteering destination means that they don’t always have open positions but they update their website whenever a spot opens up, so check back often.


You can find these opportunities on our website—search by “Organization” to find the non-profit you’re most interested in.

Excited to volunteer with animals but not interested in any of these organizations? You can find more opportunities by choosing “Animal Care Positions” from the “Category” list. Once you find an opportunity you like apply using the instructions at the bottom of the posting.
