Volunteers are vital to the success of the SPCA and the enrichment of our animals. Thanks for your interest in volunteering with us!


Volunteer Requirements:

  • Volunteers must be at least 18 years old. However, adults may volunteer with a minor (7-17 years old) on some tasks (see youth requirements).
  • Must commit to volunteering at least 25 hours per year (one shift per month).
  • Must have consistent access to internet and email.
  • Must be able to follow instructions (written and verbal) and work well with others.
  • Must attend a New Volunteer Orientation and sign a waiver before volunteering. Additional training(s) may be required.


Getting started:

Sign up for volunteer orientation

Please read about our volunteer tasks and Foster Care Program to decide if volunteering is right for you. You can also watch this video for a virtual tour of the SPCA’s two buildings: the Admission (Holding) Center and Pet Adoption Center.

The first step to becoming a volunteer is to attend a New Volunteer Orientation at our Pet Adoption Center. Click here to select a date, review the information, then click “Sign me up.” You must be 18 to sign up for an orientation.


Unfortunately, we are unable to offer court-related community service hours.
