Volunteering

Wild Rose Humane Society is extremely appreciative of all the hard work our volunteers do. Without their support we could not continue to do the great work that we do. With the many different departments and work that we have to do at the Wild Rose Humane Society we are always looking for new volunteers to help out in a variety of different departments. Volunteer work can be done in the marketing, fundraising, programs, or volunteer departments. These departments will provide volunteers the ability to help the community as well as develop new skills and a rewarding experience. 

If have a love for animals, want to help out in your community,  want to meet other individuals with similar interests, and are 16 years of age or older, you can fill out an application to become a part of our team!  Youth ages 12-15 are encouraged to apply as well, we are currently looking at creating youth volunteer opportunities for this age group.

Fostering

Our foster program for cats and dogs was launched in early 2014.  We are always accepting applications. We are looking for homes in the communities between Innisfail and Airdrie that can temporarily care for homeless/abandoned animals for eventual adoption. We have a great network of vets, animal day cares, kennels, trainers, etc. that will help us assess the animals.

 If you are interested in becoming a foster, please fill out the online volunteer application (see above) and ensure you select which animals you would be interested in fostering, in the “Assignment Preference” section.  Once your volunteer application is processed one of our Foster Coordinators will contact you to continue the process.
