Helping can be a wonderful and rewarding experience. If you choose the Greater Moncton SPCA as a location to give some of your time, it will be greatly appreciated. There are so many different things a person can do as a volunteer with the shelter. Members enjoy coming out and spending time with the animals.

Please note: Children under 16, must be supervised by an adult.

Please contact the shelter at (506) 857-8698 to register for an orientation session.


The dogs really enjoy their special time out with members whether it be going for a brisk walk down the road, sniffing their way along our wooded trails behind the shelter, playing in one of the fenced-in bark parks or just snuggling up for a good cuddle and brushing.

Fundraisers, events, etc.

Volunteers are always needed to help out with fundraisers, information booths, parades and reference checks, just to mention a few areas where we can use the help.

How to become a volunteer

Members are welcome to come and go as they please during the hours that we are open to the public: Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Orientations Sessions

You must attend one of our orientations sessions which are held at 6 p.m. on the first Monday * of every month at the shelter. * If the first Monday is a holiday, the session will be held on the following Monday.

This orientation highlights the building rules, explains the advantages of membership, explains the color coding of the dogs, offers a tour of the facility and answers any general questions you may have about what your commitment. Once you have attended and you feel that you are ready to spend some time with us, it is just a matter purchasing a membership and you are ready to go.

Please contact the shelter at (506) 857-8698 for more information.

French orientations sessions are held the first Wednesday of every month

Time commitment

Volunteers are what put the wags back in our dogs’ tails and the purrs back in our cats. Without the help of volunteers, we would never be able to pull off such events as our Dog Jog, Santa Pics and other major events.

There is no set amount of time you need to spend here. Members/volunteers are crucial to the GMSPCA and we're very grateful to those that give of their time.

You give our animals so much by being here, even if it is just once in a while. The time that they spend with you outside of their kennels gives them new hope that they are special and that someone does care.

Thank you to all our volunteers!

There is no way for us to say in words how grateful we are to all of our volunteers. We can only hope that they know how much they mean to us. We look forward to welcoming any new people who may be interested in volunteering.
