Transport Volunteer - Casual/On-Call

Respond to requests to pick up and retrieve wildlife and supplies in the Comox Valley or other island communities. Transport Volunteers normally use their own vehicles, but the MARS vehicle may be used on occasion if the volunteer submits a driver's abstract.

This position is ideal for people who care about animals, but can’t commit to a full shift in the hospital.

This is a casual/on-call position -- When we have animals or supplies in need of transport, we will call you individually or send an email to everyone on the on-call list to see who is available to help out.


  • At least 18 years of age and able to work without direct supervision
  • Able to transport animals or supplies at least twice per month
  • MARS membership -- annual membership fee $10 for seniors/students, $15 for individuals, and $25 for families
  • Able to provide proof of valid driver's license
  • Willing to submit to Criminal Record Check
