Finding Your Best Fit

PADS has many volunteer opportunities that involve working with our dogs.  Each has it’s own responsibilities, challenges and joys. In order to ensure that each person is volunteering within the area they are best suited for, we have provided this comparison table below.

Puppy-Raising and Puppy-Sitting roles are for dogs in our Puppy-Raising Program that are anywhere from 8 weeks to 2 years old. Advanced Sitters sit older dogs, typicially older than 18 months who are in our Advanced Training program. These Sitters sit dogs who live on the Burnaby campus during the week and need sitters on the weekends. 

Once you’ve had a chance to review please apply to the program area you are most interested in. In order to ensure we can appropriately manage our volunteer community, you may only volunteer in one of these roles at a time.
