Get Involved - Friends of the Animals Seeks Two Volunteers

Want to make a difference in your community? Your chance to make a difference is here, add your voice and create a vision. The Friends of the Animals Group is seeking two volunteers who do not own pets to serve as representatives on the Friends of the Animals Committee for a two- year term, expiring August 30, 2016.

The group meets on the fourth Monday of each month to review and discuss new ideas and initiatives among stakeholders in the animal care field. The group also offers a link between the City of Thunder Bay Animal Services and the community to support and enhance the Mission of the Animal Services Centre and strengthen the Centre’s communication and involvement with citizens of Thunder Bay. Learn more about Friends of the Animals.

Interested candidates must live within the City of Thunder Bay limits and have a keen interest in animal welfare in Thunder Bay, regard for the interest of all citizens, respecting that there are very diverse views of animal welfare and the ability to commit the required time to effectively carry out the Friends of the Animals mandate.

Deadline for submissions is Monday, Oct. 27, 2014. Resumes can be sent to:
