Foster Friends Program: As a Foster Friends volunteer you are providing an invaluable service for the animals in your care. Prepare underage, orphaned, or injured dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens to live in loving and permanent homes with your support and a little TLC. The Foster Friends experience is rewarding for both animal and foster parent alike.

Special Events: The SPCA is not affiliated with any national humane organization and does not receive any state or federal funding. This means that we rely on the generosity of donors to fund our programs. Volunteers help with our annual events, such as the Pet Telethon, the Wag n' Walk, and the Wild Celebration.

Grounds Maintenance: Volunteers may assist with the maintenance of our 218 acres. Gardening, painting, facility clean-up and special projects are just a few of the grounds maintenance opportunities available to volunteers.

Hug-A-Pet: This program provides visitations to care facilities by SPCA volunteers and their own companion animals. Volunteers must be compassionate and understanding of the various physical and psychological needs of the patients. All Hug-A-Pet dogs must be certified as Canine Good Citizens or Certified Therapy Dogs. Volunteers provide their own transportation and commit to an established visitation schedule.

Junior Volunteers: Junior volunteers become more knowledgeable about animals and their needs. This is the basis for an awareness of the need of all living creatures for care and love, and the developing of attitudes of kindness and thoughtfulness in human relationships.

Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation: Volunteers help staff rehabilitate injured and orphaned wildlife. Jobs include preparing meals, laundry, cleaning cages, transportation, general facility maintenance, record keeping, feeding wildlife and assisting with their care. During baby bird season (March-September), a large group of volunteers are needed to assist with the feeding of the baby birds. In addition, volunteers may help with the release of healthy animals back into the wild.
