Volunteer

Volunteer Power!

When you volunteer with us, you are a member of an extraordinary team of people from all walks of life.  Our volunteers work side-by-side with our staff members.

HSKL volunteers help to shape the shelter; they are internal and external volunteers, including Board Members.

All of our volunteers must be registered with us.  Prior to performing any tasks at/on behalf of the shelter, an up-to-date police check (depending on your age) must be completed, you will need to show proof of your COVID vaccination and you must have attended one of our orientation sessions.

If you are under the age of 16, you MUST have a parent/guardian accompany you during your volunteer shifts at all times.  There are no exceptions.

Looking for a high school or college co-op placement?  Speak to your teacher about making HSKL your placement.  We also accept students that are needing to complete their volunteer hours.  For more information on this, please contact us at sheltermanager.hskl@cogeco.net

You can pick up a volunteer form directly from the shelter at 107 McLaughlin Road, Lindsay or fill out our form below.

More information can be found by contacting our Volunteer Coordinator, Cynthia at volunteer@hskl.ca, or call her at 705-878-4618 ext. 6.  

We're excited to have you join our pawsome volunteer team!

*Please note:  Apply today, but training and new volunteer scheduling will take place after these latest COVID restrictions are lifted. Health and safety come first! Thank you for you patience and interest!  (Last updated Jan. 12, 2022)
