Canine volunteer - Weekday shifts

We are looking for volunteers to help care for our dogs during week days. 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 3 hour shift per week
  • On any available day between Monday and Friday
  • Between the hours of 9am – 12pm
  • 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 18 years and older, and can understand written and spoken English.

If you have any questions, please email us on andrea.honeybun@spca.nz
