General Volunteers

Join us as a General Volunteer

Our onsite spay neuter clinics are currently held in Alberta only. They are scheduled between Apr – Oct, when the weather is hopefully the most favourable and they run Friday-Sunday. We set up in the community and rely on 100+ volunteers per day to care for 300-700 animals over a weekend.

Volunteer Opportunities

  • General OPS (animal care, crate building, cleaning)
  • Data Entry (record keeping/ computer logs)
  • Professional Groomer

  • Autoclave Team (washing and wrapping surgical instruments)

Full orientations and details for every clinic scheduled can be found when you register as a volunteer (we will set you up in our online volunteer program called ‘Better Impact’). Through Better Impact you can see all of the volunteer opportunities, sign up for shifts that interest you and see who else is volunteering. Accommodation and transportation is the responsibility of the volunteer. We will arrange a discounted rate for motels and have a carpooling group on the private Facebook group. Vegetarian and vegan meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks) are provided at the clinic site.

 

Other opportunities for general volunteers:

  • Fundraising Events
  • Bakers needed to prepare cookies, muffins, squares etc. for volunteers ahead of the scheduled clinic. Contact catering@cataskforce.org if you are interested to help
  • Wrap Pack is looking for new volunteers to join us Sunday (1:00-4:00) and Wednesday (1:30-6:00) afternoons at our Calgary office, March through October. WP prepares items for clinic use such as gowns, wraps, drapes, scrub towels. Volunteers do not need to attend every meeting nor stay for the whole time – just come whenever you can. No experience necessary. Coffee and goodies provided. Please email Marion at wrappack@cataskforce.org

We hope you will consider joining our fantastic team of volunteers!
