For over 150 years, the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society has been Ontario’s animal charity, providing programs and services that help enrich the lives of pets and enhance the overall well-being of animals, people, and our communities. If you love animals and are looking to start a new career or volunteer position, the Ontario SPCA may be the place for you.
The Ontario SPCA wants to see its team members thrive, both personally and professionally. Together, we are a team dedicated to making a difference in the lives of animals in need.
Here’s a note from some of our long-time employees on why they love working for the Ontario SPCA.
Shelter Health & Wellness
Carol Beard is the manager of the Ontario SPCA Orillia Animal Centre and has been working with the Society since 1984.
“I would have to say working for an animal welfare organization has so many rewarding and exciting opportunities, with each day being different and presenting some challenges that we (the team) are able to turn into success stories,” says Carol. “It’s probably one of my favourite parts of my day.”
She is proud to work for a positive organization that values collaboration as it works to advance animal well-being.
“My day-to-day work involves so many different facets and I would be remiss to not mention that without my team, it truly wouldn’t be possible to accomplish all the things we do,” Carol says.
Community Outreach Services
Bonnie Bishop is the Eastern Regional Manager of Community Outreach Services at the Ontario SPCA. She is part of a dedicated team that delivers mobile animal wellness services and community support services across the province.
“The ability to work for the Ontario SPCA for the past 17 years has been exciting, impactful and personally fulfilling. The work is diverse and the ability to improve the lives of animals and the relationship between animals and people is rewarding,” says Bonnie, who has performed a variety of different roles at the Ontario SPCA.
She is grateful for the opportunity to help vulnerable animals in communities across Ontario.
“As we work hard to supply services, programs and resources to community members, I am very aware of the significant advancements in animal welfare and the hard work that lies ahead,” Bonnie says. “Partnerships, collaboration and best practices will ensure future progress in creating a brighter future for animals. I am privileged to do this job and do not want to do anything else. Please join me in making a difference in the lives of animals.”
