To volunteer for The Winnipeg Humane Society, you must be:

  • 16 years of age or older
  • Able to make a 6-month commitment to The WHS
  • Able to work independently, and positively with other people
  • Committed to the protection and care of animals
  • You must also have a valid email address to use our online scheduling system. Due to the nature of our organization, we cannot accommodate court-ordered community service placements or groups wanting to volunteer.

How to become a volunteer

Your first step is to attend a Volunteer Information Session, where you will learn about the many volunteer positions and time commitments, and take a tour of the shelter.
