Shelter Building Workshops


As of the end of our 2016-17 workshop season we built over 4,500 shelters and look forward to building even more shelters to keep Toronto’s street cats safe and warm.

How:  To join one or more of the above listed workshops,

  1. VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENT:  Because we use sharp tools in the building of our shelters you must be 18 yrs or older to volunteer with us.  We accept volunteers between 16 – 18yrs but an adult (over 18yrs) must sign the volunteer agreement with them.  Those between 14-16 must be accompanied by an adult who must also sign the volunteer agreement on their behalf (see next point)  We can’t accept volunteers under 14yrs of age. 
  2. VOLUNTEER AGREEMENT:  If you have never filled one in, click here and print one out (preferably on two sided paper), fill it out in advance, and bring it to the workshop.  You only need to sign this agreement once.  If you aren’t able to print out the form in advance you can fill it out when you sign in at the workshop.
  3. REGISTER:  Fill in this short registration form and you’ll be automatically signed up to help. 

Where: in the garage of Toronto Humane Society, 11 River Street (@ Queen Street East), in Toronto. Once you arrive in the lobby, take the elevators to the basement. Once in the basement, follow the signs that will be posted on the walls.
