Volunteer Program

Be a part of our award-winning volunteer program! 

Why was the Sacramento SPCA voted “Best Place to Volunteer” by readers of Sacramento Magazine? Because we take your commitment seriously.

We provide training that prepares you to improve the lives of homeless animals, as well as administer the programs that help us provide the care and placement they deserve. At the Sacramento SPCA our volunteers are the heart of what we do.

Our program begins with a new volunteer orientation — an informative introduction held once a month to introduce you to the Sacramento SPCA and the opportunities we have available.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. We do offer youth group activities and community service projects that can be done from home. Please note that these student community service opportunities do not include working directly with the animals due to the extensive training required. We do welcome you to continue once your project is completed and become a regular volunteer.
