Adult Volunteers at the CASPCA

If you are interested in becoming a CASPCA Volunteer, complete the Volunteer Application and email the Volunteer Manager at volunteer@caspca.org to reserve your spot at a General Orientation. There is a $10 fee for each new volunteer.

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Dog Walker Volunteer: Volunteers must be able to commit to a minimum of 30 total hours within the first 6 months, and be available for a shift on Mon AM(8-10am), Thurs PM (4-6pm), or Sat PM (4-6pm). Dog walker volunteers take dogs on walks, provide enrichment for shyer dogs, and assist with off-site adoption events.
  • Housekeeping: Volunteers must be able to commit to a minimum of 30 total hours within the first 6 months. Housekeeper volunteers help with the continuous cleaning and maintenance required at the shelter, typically in the form of laundry, sweeping/mopping, or sorting donations.
  • Cat Care Volunteer: Volunteers must be able to commit to a minimum of 30 total hours within the first 6 months. Cat volunteers will socialize cats, introduce prospective adopters to available cats, and help maintain a clean environment for the animals.
  • Rummage Store Volunteer: Volunteers must be able to commit to a minimum of 30 total hours within the first 6 months.

Expressing interest does not guarantee placement to a particular volunteer assignment. New volunteers will be scheduled based on the needs of the organization and the skill set of the volunteer. Once completing General Orientation, the Volunteer Manager will follow-up with potential placement(s). Depending on your role, you’ll either receive further training, or be assigned with the appropriate volunteer opportunity.
