We are looking for outgoing, friendly individuals to join our Event Volunteer team! This is a great way to get involved in your community, experience events, and meet a lot of great people. Events range from big to small and the commitment varies (week nights, week days, length of time, etc), depending on what exciting opportunity you want to be a part of. Don’t worry about experience – we will provide training!

Please be sure to read the following carefully. This application is to become an Event Volunteer with the Guelph Humane Society (GHS). GHS receives many applications; include as much information in your application as possible, as this is our first step in getting to know you.

The Guelph Humane Society requires all volunteers 18 years and older to submit a Criminal Record Check as part of our screening process. Record checks are free for GHS volunteers. All accepted volunteers will be given a letter to provide Guelph Police Services for a Criminal Record Check after orientation. Criminal Record Checks completed within the past 12 months are acceptable. More information on obtaining a Record Check from Guelph Police Services, can be found at https://www.guelphpolice.ca/en/request-for-information/records-and-background-checks.aspx
