Dog Squad Volunteer

We are on the lookout for volunteers to join our Dog Squad. Dog Squad volunteers play a vital role in the enrichment of our dogs. Shifts are spent walking our dogs for Adoption and playing with our boarding dogs.

Volunteers must be willing to walk, socialize and train dogs in all weather, frost, rain or shine.

We need volunteers who fit the following criteria:

  • Can commit to at least one shift per week - shifts are Monday to Saturday 1pm – 4pm, Sundays 1pm – 3pm
  • Have a good level of fitness
  • Are able to commit for a period of at least six months
  • Are hardworking and reliable
  • Must be confident at handling various sizes, breeds and ages of dogs, especially large dogs

All Dog Squad Volunteers will attend a Dog Training with our Canine Team before they can work with the dogs.

If you have any questions, please call us on 03 349 7057 ext 8379 or email christchurch.volunteer@spca.nz.
