We would be happy welcome your employee group to our animal shelter at 11 River Street for a volunteer experience through our corporate giving program. By participating in a shelter experience day, your corporate team will be improving the lives of homeless animals in your community. Participants will learn about our shelter operations, and what it takes on a daily basis to help more than 16,000 animals each year. Your group will also be able to interact with the animals and contribute their time to projects that will enrich the lives of our animals.
As we receive no government funding, and rely 100% on donations from corporations and individuals to operate our animal shelter, the support you will be providing means we can continue to feed, shelter and supply veterinary care to animals in need. By contributing a donation along with your volunteer time, it will make a huge impact to our shelter. Tax receipts will be provided for all corporate donations, and if employees plan to fundraise and need some ideas to get started, please let us know or visit our host an event page.
While visiting, volunteers help to enrich the lives of the animals while helping with socialization. Regular volunteer interaction improves the quality of the life for the animals in our care and helps to get the animals adopted faster.
Toronto Humane Society relies heavily on volunteers to provide enrichment and exercise to the animals in our care until they are adopted. Our regular on-site volunteers, such as dog walkers, undergo a lengthy training process and are required to volunteer on a weekly basis.
We offer a variety of experiences for your team to see how our shelter runs, meet some of the animals staying here, and contribute to the animals' welfare through enrichment and educational sessions.
($500 donation - your support will provide food for the shelter animals for a day)
($2,500 donation - your support provides for shelter operations for a day at our 30,000 sq. ft facility and all of the animals housed)
($5,000 - your donation provides veterinary care for a day at our shelter for all of the animals)
If an employee team day at our shelter isn't the right fit for your group, we are also happy to have you come for a tour or work together on a custom option that would be ideal for your employee group.
