SPCA International realizes that the important services offered by any nonprofit organization are performed by a league of committed volunteers. These dedicated individuals make a difference for both people and animals every day. For this reason, SPCA International has developed a volunteer program to connect volunteers with shelters that need their assistance.
Foster Care Volunteer
SPCA International receives regular requests from individuals who need foster care for all different types of animals. This may be due to a family illness, a temporary change in living arrangements or military deployment. During a disaster people are often desperate for a safe place to keep their animals when forced to evacuate. The need for a foster home may be for several weeks or months. When a foster home is available, it means an individual will not be forced permanently to give up a beloved companion. Animals remain in the general vicinity of their permanent home so that when possible, their pet parent may visit them. Learn More!
Local humane societies, SPCAs, shelters and rescue groups all need your help. We greatly encourage you to sign up to volunteer at an animal welfare organization in your area. Many of these groups run entirely on volunteer time. Your help can make a huge difference for these local groups and for every single animal they protect.
Every SPCA, humane society, local shelter and rescue group is individually operated with its own volunteer policies and procedures. We suggest you search online to find shelters and rescue groups near you. Remember, the one that appears at the top of the search list probably gets the most help, so if you keep searching down the list, you can probably find a local organization in dire need of assistance.
