We offer classes to children, youth and adults of all skill levels.

Off-Site Events: Quest Art, as a charitable organization, is often invited to a wide range of events in the Midland-Penetang’, and sometimes wider, region.

      Animal Caregiver   Bruce County  Grey County 
      Grey Bruce Animal Shelter
      457437 Concession 8 S Owen Sound, ON N4K 5N8
      We are always looking for volunteers to help out around the kennels. We are open every morning 7 days a week from 8AM - noon. We have a shift of volunteers in every morning to look after the cats and dogs: cleaning, feeding, grooming, walking, laundry, vet runs, administering medications and of course putting dogs out in outdoor runs and walking them. We walk the dogs every day, unless the weather is really, really bad (i.e. too cold or just plain dangerous). We also have evening dog walkers who are paired up for safety reasons (don't want people out at the shelter alone) and they walk dogs or put them out for a stretch in outdoor pens, administer any necessary evening medications and/or extra feeds to cats or dogs and clean up any kennels that have messes.  
       
      We do ask volunteers to try and commit to a period of time on a regular basis (e.g. a particular morning/evening every week or every other week) as it makes it easier for scheduling and also keeps the volunteer familiar to the animals they are caring for. With the dogs, this makes a big difference. We have some dogs that are with us for a while before finding a forever home so we try to have them handled by people they know as much as possible.
