About Volunteering

As an SPCA  volunteer, you are important to us!

Volunteers help the shelter run smoothly, increase adoptions by being knowledgeable and friendly, and make our animals more comfortable and happier. Volunteering is important for the organization, the animals and the individual.

There are a world of opportunities for you to use your special skills to help homeless animals in our community. While we always need volunteers to help care for our shelter dogs, cats, and bunnies, we also need people to answer phones at the adoption desk, assist with maintenance and carpentry projects, monitor and greet guests at the shelter, counsel potential adopters and help with special events and creative projects like our float for the Ithaca Festival parade.

If you love animals and can give us one shift per week, we can promise you good feelings and fun. We strive to make the volunteer experience as useful as possible. Please look at the other volunteering pages on this site for more information.

Ava


"Just wanted to thank you (again) for bringing Ava into my life…we adopted her back in 2010 when that huge intake of dogs and cats came from that one bedroom trailer. I was volunteering at the shelter at the time and fell in love with her instantly. I could have never asked for a better dog. She is gentle, loving, sweet, well behaved…an all-around wonderful dog. And beautiful, to boot."
