2022 Volunteer Orientation

Be part of a Team that enjoys working with and learning from one another!


Thank you for your interest in volunteering! You are about to embark on this journey, and you are going to learn a lot of information about the basics of the volunteer program.  But, you are never alone, and we are here to support you throughout your journey of being a volunteer.  The SPCA is a special place where everyone who comes through our doors belongs here.  So, whatever inspired you to volunteer, please know we cannot wait to be inspired by you and work with you.

The gratitude we feel towards our volunteers can never truly be placed into words, and we hope that no matter what life brings that when you are here, you feel valued, appreciated, and loved. Because we really do love our volunteers, and we cannot do this without them!
