We are a local branch of ElderDog Canada, a nationwide non-profit that works to keep love in the home by supporting the amazing bond between seniors and their dogs. Having a dog in your life provides comfort, companionship, laughter, support and well-being.
ElderDog and its volunteer team assists older adults in the care of their canine companions through personalized in-home support. We also offer temporary fostering care for dogs in the event a senior has a medical emergency or is hospitalized, so the senior can focus on getting well, with assurance that their lovable dogs are being supported and cared for.
Possible Volunteer Opportunities:
- Dog walking, dog food delivery
- Transporting dogs to veterinarian appointments
- Volunteers for temporary fostering dogs
- Dog Care Support Coordinator
- Fundraising manager
- Banking/finance position
- Volunteer Coordinator
- Community Outreach/Marketing
ElderDog is 100% volunteer based and support is provided free of charge to seniors in need of such services. By volunteering with us, not only do you get a sense of accomplishment and well-being, you would be giving back to our community by supporting seniors. Plus, health benefits – fresh air and exercise from walking dogs!
