Team Experience Day

*Please note this program has been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. Please stay tuned to our website for its return*

Our Team Experience Day allows local companies and groups to experience group volunteering at our facility, in Toronto. By participating in a Team Experience Day, your team/group will directly help to improve the lives of animals. Participants will learn about our operations and what it takes day-to-day to help thousands of animals each year. Your team/group will interact with some of our animals and participate in projects that will help to enrich the lives of our animals. At Toronto Humane Society, we rely solely on generous gifts from corporations, foundations and individuals to achieve our mission. The support you provide means we can continue to provide the necessary care to animals and their families. By financially supporting our organization and volunteering your time, you and your team will be making a huge impact for animals in our care, in our community and those who are beyond our community borders. Team Experience Days provide an experience to you and your group. Because of this, according to CRA Regulations, we are unable to issue a tax receipt for Team Experience Day contributions. If your team would like to fundraise and need some ideas to get started, please let us know at fundraising@torontohumanesociety.com
Team Experience Day

Why Participate?

When visiting, volunteers enrich animals’ lives while helping them socialize. Regular volunteer interaction improves the quality of the animals’ lives while they are in our care. Improving their quality of life and social skills can help to get them adopted sooner.

At Toronto Humane Society, we rely heavily on volunteers to provide enrichment and exercise to the animals. Our regular on-site volunteers, such as dog walkers, undergo a lengthy training process and must volunteer on a weekly basis. With a Team Experience Day, you can see how our volunteers help out every day.
