Position # 1480
Position Action Volunteer
Impact Statement Action Volunteers for Animals (AVA) is an all-volunteer run charitable animal rescue dedicated to improving the lives of stray and feral animals. We have been a registered charity since 1981 and operate thanks to generous donations by individuals and pet charities.

We work predominantly in the GTA (Peel Region, York Region, Durham Region, Hamilton and Toronto) and are sometimes able to help cats in other areas of Ontario and Quebec.

Many animals are homeless until AVA comes to their aid. Rescued cats are vaccinated and spayed or neutered. Many of the rescued cats also require medical treatment; each year we pay for surgeries, x-rays, medications, blood tests, dental procedures and hospitalizations. Cats are then placed in foster homes until they are ready to be adopted to their forever homes.
Description Volunteer at an adoption centre
Our adoption centres are run by volunteers. AVA has locations in Oshawa, Toronto, Scarborough, Richmond Hill, Brampton, and Vaughan. We are always looking for energetic volunteers to feed and clean up after the cats, keep the adoption centers clean, play with and socialize our cats, and assist potential adopters to find the right cat. If you love animals, are over 18, and are able to commit to 3 hours a week for at least 3 months, apply to volunteer and set up a volunteer orientation session. We operate on a monthly schedule so we want volunteers who can commit to a regular time slot. Special need for weekday 9am-12pm shift volunteers!

AVA is proud to be 100% volunteer run. But we need your help!
