Nova Scotia SPCA Thrift Store Volunteer Application


  • Due to the training involved with the roles at our thrift store we request a certain level of commitment for our store. If you are not available for 6 months consistently, we welcome you to volunteer with us for special events.

  • If yes to the above question, please let us know what they might be...


    Please let us know what opportunities you are interested in and what your availability is...
    Due to the limited availability of orientation sessions, and to ensure volunteers are trained and comfortable with processes, the majority of our volunteer positions require a specific weekly time commitment.
    Please check any/all you are interested in. We will be in touch to talk to you about which role we can place you in, based on availability.
    Please check as many options as you can, as some shifts fill quickly and we may look to your second or third choices for volunteering.
