How to Volunteer


All volunteers are required to first take part in an orientation session. These are held every week at our shelter, and take about an hour. We will show you around the facility, and show you some of the tasks that volunteers can do to help out. 

For more information, you can read our Volunteer Handbook

Please have a membership / volunteer form filled out when you arrive for your orientation. 

Contact us at orientations@nwtspca.com to book your orientation!
