Animal Protection

Please be aware that the SPCA is an organization that never turns away animals that need sheltering or care. This means that we accept animals into our care with aggression, temperament, and/or medical issues that other organizations will not accept. Those animals that cannot be successfully treated or re-habilitated are humanely put to sleep. If you have more questions about this, please contact our Volunteer Program Manager.


I understand and agree that submitting this application form does not guarantee acceptance into the volunteer program. I understand there are requirements I must meet before I am able to volunteer.

I also understand that upon successful interview, I am required to pay the Volunteer Administration fee, $30. This fee covers uniform, training and training materials

To my knowledge, the information I have provided is accurate and true.
