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, volunteers may bring a minor (7-17 years old) with them on some tasks (Learn more about 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 written and verbal instructions, 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 take a virtual tour (from a puppy’s point of view) of the SPCA’s two buildings (the Holding Center and the Adoption Center) via this video.

The next 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.” Due to space constraints, you must be 14 or older to attend orientation.


Please note: Unfortunately, we are unable to offer court-related community service opportunities.
