Volunteer

Grande Prairie & District SPCA is currently seeking Volunteers to help with fundraising efforts.

If you want to be a part of getting GPSPCA's door re-opened so we can make a difference in the lives of the animals in our community, we NEED and WANT your help. If you volunteer weekly or only once or twice a year, we appreciate whatever spare time you are able to give!


Volunteering is great for people of all ages. It is an excellent opportunity to get work experience, socialize and meet new people while helping a worth while organization.
