The Richmond Animal Protection Society always welcomes new volunteers at our City Shelter and Cat Sanctuary. If you can dedicate just a few hours of your week, we need volunteers to feed the animals, clean animal pens, do laundry or dishes, and walk dogs.
If you wish to volunteer at the RAPS Cat Sanctuary, volunteer shifts are from 9 a.m. to 12 noon and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
If you wish to volunteer at the RAPS City Shelter, volunteer shifts are from 9 a.m. to 12 noon daily. Volunteer shifts are usually two hours long, and we recommend that you commit to just one or two shifts a week.
Please call us at 604-275-2036 or email us at Shelter_volunteer@rapsbc.com to volunteer at the RAPS City Shelter.
