Animal Care Volunteers

Animal Care Volunteers are a crucial component of our success at the Quinte Humane Society. They assist the staff with a number of tasks that can free up their staff and allow for more direct contact with the animals. This is beneficial for increased socialization, improved health outcomes and shortened length of stay.
