General information

Getting Started

To begin your community service for the Sacramento SPCA, fill out the online Community Service Application

You may begin your project at any time after you have submitted your application.  You will not receive a confirmation when your application is received.  If your school hasn’t provided you with one, you can keep track of your hours on our downloadable timesheet.

Projects You Can Do
Community Service

Students and scout troops needing community service hours for school or badge projects are encouraged to help the Sacramento SPCA by completing one of our community service projects.  Your hard work will make a difference in the lives of the animals in our care!

Hands-on, in-shelter volunteers must be 18 years old or older, apart from our Camp Counselor program.  We are sorry, but we are unable to make exceptions to this policy.  Please note that the Sacramento SPCA does not have a program for court-ordered community service at this time.
