Canine volunteer
Hokitika Centre

Canine volunteer

We are looking for volunteers to help care for our dogs. This role requires a good level of fitness and confidence in handling large dogs.

You will be required to help with the cleaning of the dog pens and to walk the dogs once the cleaning is done. The work we ask our canine volunteers to do is quite strenuous and you must be willing to walk to dogs in all weathers, rain or shine.

We need volunteers who can help with the following:

  • With at least one 4 hour shift per week.
  • On any available day between Monday and Sunday.
  • Between the hours of 8:00am – 4:00pm.
  • Are able to commit for a period of at least six months.

You must be confident at handling dogs, hardworking and reliable. We need volunteers that are prepared to commit to the minimum requirement of 6 months and can understand written and spoken English.

If you have any questions, please call us on 03 768 5223 or email greymouth.volunteer@spca.nz.
