  • Ability to work independently
  • Dependable and committed
  • Experience working with ill or injured animals
  • 19 years or older

With dogs not being permitted in the market area, the BC SPCA provides a fenced-in area where volunteers and leashed dogs interact and play together. 

A dog handler is someone who is experienced and comfortable handling a leashed dog that has been pre-screened and logged in (similar to a coat-check service) by a senior volunteer or staff member. Dogs are given one-on-one attention. We try not to intake more dogs than volunteers, however, we do offer dogs who are familiar with crating a chance to be crated (until a volunteer becomes available).

Are you handy with tools and fixing things? Wild ARC treats 140 different species annually and each one needs specialized enclosures. Join our maintenance team to help us keep up with repairs throughout the year.
