This winter at our Nanaimo location, we will be offering a three-session BC SPCA Career Prep workshop from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. for youth born 2005-2007. Participants will learn what it is like to work at a BC SPCA shelter location through activities, guest speakers and assisting with plans to improve animal adoptions. They will also help socialize the shelter’s animal guests. Each session will focus on a different group of animals at the shelter.

The registration fee for each session is $25, with $5 off for BC SPCA Kids Club members with a discount code. Children who register for all three sessions will get a discounted price of $20 per session, with an extra $5 off the total for Kids Club members with a discount code.

      • Wednesday, January 3: Dog focus
      • Thursday, January 4: Small animal focus
      • Friday, January 5: Cat focus

Registration for the three-session BC SPCA Career Prep workshop is open now.
Questions about this workshop may be directed to Blaire Sigson.
