Current opportunities

Due to the province wide lockdown, our volunteer program is currently on hold.  There are no postings for volunteers at the Hamilton/Burlington SPCA at this time.

Please check back periodically for any changes.


The Times of COVID have changed how all of us live, work and play in our homes, neighbourhoods, and workplaces.  It is no different at the HBSPCA.

The requirements of health and safety for customers, volunteers and staff mean fewer people on site and no gatherings in public. We do have volunteer dog walkers ensuring the dogs in our care are receiving socialization and adequate exercise, additional walkers are not required at this time.

Taking Care of the Animals

The HBSPCA continues to operate with reduced numbers of staff.  The HBSPCA continues to match pet companions with new families through “no contact adoptions”, receives owned pets and street cats for surgery through curbside drop off and pick up, provides telemedicine services, supports pets and their families at the end of life, and as always, receives animals with urgent and emergency needs.
