Barb is one of our longest-standing volunteers. She got involved with the HBSPCA in March 2006 shortly after she retired – 3 months to be exact. Barb realized she couldn’t stay at home after she retired from 41 years of service at a credit union. Using her experience, she enlisted to volunteer as a data entry clerk. Her work at the HBSPCA is vital; she is in charge of entering all our donation and donors’ information into our database. She is extremely dedicated, you will find Barb in our office Monday through Friday rain or shine for four hours every day. She takes her volunteering so seriously that she beats the staff to work in the mornings!
Barb’s volunteering isn’t strictly related to office work. In fact, you may recognize Barb’s face from some of our signature events such as the annual Wiggle Waggle Walk and Picture Your Pet with Santa.
April 23 – 29 is National Volunteer Appreciation Week. We want to feature some of our most outstanding, dedicated volunteers to thank them for their commitment and dedication. Whether dog walking, cat cuddling, helping recover animals from surgery, or manning booths at events, every single volunteer makes a difference in our shelter animals’ lives.

On April 1st, we were proud to welcome friends, family, sponsors, donors and adopters to join us in celebrating 130 years of service to our community! This was the first event in a series of events in 2017 to celebrate the last 13 decades of rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming the animals of Hamilton and Burlington.
We thank all who attended, especially our special guest speakers and we can’t wait to see you at one of our events this year!
Delicious treats for all to enjoy!
