The GTHS Animal Hospital contains an Operating Room, Treatment Room, Examination Room, Pharmacy, X-Ray Room and a Hospital Intake / Recovery Area, and provides spay/neuter surgeries for over 1500 homeless pets annually. Having an onsite hospital ensures animals receive timely, thorough and comprehensive care, saves dozens of daily phone calls, reduces trips back and forth to veterinary clinics, dramatically decreases the stress on the GTHS animals, and leads to the additional benefit of earlier adoption availability; so these animals find their forever home quickly. 
 
The Hospital Discharge Volunteer is responsible for discharging animals to the public after their Hospital appointment / surgery, create kennel tags and preparing for the next day's appointments and overseeing the cleanliness of the small Hospital Intake Room.

Parkinson Society Southwestern Ontario

The facilitator will:

  • Support the goals of PSSO in local communities with an emphasis on providing
    information and fellowship for people living with Parkinson’s and their families.
  • Attend ongoing training/education and Community of Practice meetings provided
    by PSSO to increase their knowledge about Parkinson’s disease and to enhance
    their skills as a facilitator.
  • Ensure all public notices for the group contain the group information, PSSO logo,
    and a reference to the group being a program of PSSO.
  • Provide PSSO with updated group lists, including names, addresses, telephone
    numbers, and email addresses regularly.
  • Provide an attendance record (First & Last Name of each participant) to PSSO
    immediately following each group session. This will be submitted using the
    volunteer portal “My Impact Page.”
  • Document all hours of volunteering using the volunteer portal “My Impact Page,”
    which should include all time spent each month planning as well as group
    facilitation.
  • Notify PSSO of any important information immediately as it pertains to the overall
    group or specific client participants (questions, resources, health changes, death in
    the family, etc.).

The facilitator works with the group to:

  • Act in accordance with the Volunteer Code of Conduct (see page 12)
  • Define the role and emphasize that the facilitator is not an expert in all things.
  • Conduct group meetings in a caring, respectful, and compassionate manner.
  • Promote the value of empowerment, encouraging individuals to be involved in
    making decisions about their own care.
  • Establish, with input from group participants, a list of ground rules and goals for the
    group and review the list with the group on a regular basis.
  • Foster an opportunity for people to interact with others dealing with similar health
    concerns and facilitate the sharing of their experience living with Parkinson’s.
  • Encourage group members to participate in PSSO programs, education events, and
    fundraising events.
  • Invite group participants to connect with PSSO staff and programs as necessary.
  • Welcome and introduce new participants to the group, explain group guidelines such as confidentiality and help them connect with other group participants.

Group Interaction & Communication
The facilitator will:

  • Ensure group participants are educated about and adhere to the confidentiality
    policy.
  • Moderate the discussions in the group to ensure that all participants have an equal
    opportunity to share if they wish. This may require the facilitator to enhance their
    skills to ensure that participants that are talkative do not monopolize the
    discussion. Gently redirect attention to less vocal participants.
  • Encourage a balance in discussions by encouraging the group to consider
    constructive solutions when negative issues are being addressed. Although there
    will be times when participants need to freely express and share their feelings, even
    if their tone seems negative.
  • Remind the group that the symptoms, treatment, and progression of Parkinson’s
    are unique to each person, so others’ experiences may be different from one’s own.
  • Strive to present information and encourage discussion that is honest while at the
    same time promotes a feeling of optimism.
  • Remind participants to adopt a “consumers beware” approach to any information
    shared in the group and do their own research or speak with a medical professional
    before actin

    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.

    Butt Blitz Team Coordinator   Bruce County  Grey County  Muskoka District  Northumberland County  Parry Sound District  Peterborough County  Simcoe County 
    A Greener Future

    In 2015, we ran our first ever Butt Blitz — an action-oriented campaign focused on raising public awareness about cigarette litter, while simultaneously removing as much of it from the environment as possible.

    Cigarette butts account for 1 in 5 pieces of litter that we find at our cleanups. These small cigarette butts are one of the most common forms of litter and when not disposed of properly, they cause negative impacts on local ecosystems and health.

    Each spring, volunteers from across Canada pick up cigarette butts in their local communities, then send them to TerraCycle Canada for recycling. The social impact of this event is just as important as the environmental impact, as it helps prevent cigarette butt litter from ending up on the ground in the future!

    We are looking for Butt Blitz Coordinators in communities across Canada to join us in expanding our impact by engaging volunteers locally throughout April!

    As a Butt Blitz Coordinator, you are dedicating your time throughout April to help reduce the amount of cigarette litter in your local community and create a safer, healthier environment. You will help to spread awareness and connect others within your community to get involved in this initiative to reduce cigarette waste. 

    All you need to participate is a pair of gloves, an up-cycled container (e.g., an old yogurt tub) to collect your butts in, and an interest in improving your local environment!

    Coordinator Responsibilities:

    • Review and understand the Butt Blitz Coordinator Information package

    • Participate in cigarette litter cleanups to contribute to the overall goal of removing 1 million cigarette butts

    • Choose a central and easily accessible location for local volunteers to drop off their collected butts (e.g., your front porch)

    • Engage and support a team of local volunteers throughout April (e.g., answering questions, keeping in contact, hosting small group cleanups)

    •  Mail in the cigarette butt collection to TerraCycle for recycling (shipping label provided by A Greener Future)

    • Attend virtual team meetings via Google Meets (3 in total, max 30 minutes in length)

    • Complete weekly check-ins with A Greener Future staff (via email or virtual call)

    • Speak with the local media about the Butt Blitz should the possibility arrive

    • Sign a virtual Liability Waiver

    Please note: The Butt Blitz is a 19+ event (18+ in Alberta and Quebec) because we are working with hazardous waste.

    To apply for this opportunity, please complete the application below by Sunday, Feb. 25, 2024: https://form-can.keela.co/butt-blitz-spring-2024-coordinator-form

    Selected candidates will be contacted for an interview to ensure that the role is a good fit and we’ll answer any questions you may have about the position.

    • Media Relations –connect with local media outlets to promote the Gutsy Walk
    • Social Media –raise awareness about IBD and the Gutsy Walk through social media
    • Fundraising –organize exciting fundraisers in your community
