Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Pacific Animal Therapy Society.    

Our September intake is now full - we opened on the morning of September 20th and reached our full quota (24) by mid afternoon.   As a small non-profit with a fully volunteer workforce we are only able to absorb a controlled number of new members each session.

Information on intake sessions in 2019 will be posted here in the coming months.

We are based in Victoria BC and accept applicants from the Greater Victoria area, the Saanich Peninsula and the Western Communities.

As a member of PATS you are asked to make a pet visit at least once per month (this can be averaged out over the year) and you should have some reasonable availability to volunteer - please ask yourself how you will fit this activity into your current life.   There are opportunities throughout the week, including weekends, during the daytime hours but almost no evening visits.

Pets must be at least 1 year of age, have current immunizations including rabies and may not be on a diet which includes raw meat.  

If you have any questions at this time please feel free to email us at
