​Volunteer Opportunities 

If you have a passion for animals and want to get involved in the Edmonton and surrounding areas, you've come to the right place! 

BARS is 100% volunteer powered and all of our animals in care are placed with volunteers in their homes. We constantly require new foster homes for canines, felines and small animals in order to continue assisting the animals in our care. 

However, there is much more to maintaining the animals than just offering a place to stay. If you are looking to get in involved in other ways, we have a variety of positions available.


If you do not see anything listed that catches your eye, we have numerous other roles available, get in touch to learn more!
