Volunteers

 

 
The Outaouais S.P.C.A. has a huge need for volunteers for various events and activities. Volunteers of all types are welcome, but it is important to realize that not everyone is suited to working with animals. The barking, the odors and the realities of the shelter can be difficult for some. However, you do not have to come to the shelter to volunteer for us.
 
What the Outaouais S.P.C.A. needs above all are kind-hearted people who wish to help us in making our small daily miracles happen. To determine if you possess the qualities required to volunteer at our shelter, please answer this short questionnaire.
