Benefits Of Animal Rescue Volunteering:
There are many personal benefits to be gained from volunteering at an animal rescue centre. Mostly though, animal rescue volunteers are joining a network of caring people in our community and around the world that can be proud of having helped our furry-friends-in-need to enjoy a more comfortable life – while sharing and promoting the importance of responsible pet ownership and animal protection.

Oasis Animal Rescue Volunteer Teams:
Oasis is fortunate to have a team of talented and dedicated volunteers who contribute their time to the day-to-day clerical tasks and general upkeep of the Oshawa office. We are always looking for new individuals to help out in the animal food bank, take on administrative tasks, assist with housekeeping duties, answer the phones, greet in-office guests, help socialize the animals, and a variety of other tasks
Oasis will be attending several “tabling” events throughout the summer and require committed event volunteers who will be engaging in conversation with the public about the programs we offer (i.e. Food Bank, Foster/Adoption program, Volunteer Opportunities, etc…) as well as raising awareness of the importance of protecting and rehoming displaced, homeless, and abandoned domestic animals
As part of our community awareness project an enthusiastic, high energy team of volunteers will be helping introduce Oasis to the residents of Oshawa! Community Ambassadors will be visiting Oshawa neighborhoods to meet residents, say “Hi” and familiarize people with the work Oasis does. (Awareness building – No Selling)

Why do volunteers need to apply?: Non-profit organizations need to be careful about who they allow to volunteer for them. There are many horror stories about inadequately vetted volunteers causing harm to a nonprofit's clients. An adequate volunteer application form is essential as an organization can be held responsible for illegal acts of volunteers unless there are sufficient safeguards and paperwork in place. Umbrella insurance policies protect non-profits, but only if they properly vet and document volunteer workers.
