Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for wanting to help! You will make a huge difference in the lives of animals.

The following categories of volunteer opportunities are currently available:

Events Volunteer: VHS participates and hosts several events during the year including merchandise pop ups, parades, Christmas Santa photos, puppy adoption events etc. We need numerous volunteers to help set-up and man the events.

Home Checks: Home check volunteers visit homes of potential adopters and foster parents and assist with determining if the home will be a right fit for the animal in question. Home check volunteers receive training on the proper way to conduct a home check.

Transportation: Often animals need to be escorting to events, vet appointments, grooming appointments etc. Transportation volunteers assist with this activity.

VHS also needs volunteer help with fundraising, photography, graphic design and more. If you have a special skill you would like to offer, please get in touch!

Currently we are not able to accommodate volunteer dog walkers and companions as we do not have a shelter which would make it possible to volunteer directly with the animals in care. We are working on it though so watch this page for updates.

You are the lifeblood of our work on behalf of animals.

You are the lifeblood of our work on behalf of animals.

As a non-profit organization, the Victoria Humane Society depends entirely on donations from kind-hearted people like you. Every month, we rescue literally dozens of dogs and cats, and sometimes other small animals, many from horrific circumstances such as neglect, starvation and abuse. The associated costs of rescue are significant, from arranging transportation for the animals out of remote communities and into our care, to emergency medical bills to save animals lives, to spay and neuter costs, vaccinations, hospitalizations, medications and on-going food costs and incidentals. Monthly and one-time donors are literally our most critical form of support. We thank you for donating what you can today.
