Thank you for visiting Animal Services. We are responsible for the enforcement of dog licensing and animal control regulations as well as the operation of the City’s Animal Shelter located in Queensborough.
*New Westminster Animal Services is currently not accepting applications for new volunteers as our roster is full at this time. Please continue to check back for information on when volunteers are being accepted.
At this time, we are only looking for dog walkers who are available on weekdays. Our dog-walking weekend shifts are full, and our cat-socializing shifts are full through the week. Thank you for your interest in volunteering!
The Animal Shelter utilizes volunteers to help give the extra attention and exercise to our adoptable animals. From dog walking to cat socialization, there are many opportunities for you to help a shelter animal in need.
