Have you ever thought about volunteering at the SPCA? We’d love to have you join our volunteer family! There are many opportunities, some in the shelter, and some you can do from your own home. See the list below for just SOME of our opportunities! And be sure to join our email list to stay abreast of activities where the SPCA could use your help!

How Do I Volunteer?

  • Step one: Peruse Volunteer Opportunities (see list below, and also “Downeast Tails” newsletters for emerging opportunities)
  • Step 2: Fill out a volunteer application
  • Step 3: Our wonderful Volunteer Coordinator Hannah will contact you to arrange a time for orientation and training (if applicable). Note that orientation is currently done online or over the phone.
  • Receive our never-ending thanks!

Shelter Helpers

We want to keep our shelter very clean for the animals as they await their forever homes. If cleaning is your thing, we need you!

Dog Walkers

Want to get fit but don’t want to walk alone? Pick up one of our shelter dogs for a walk around our grounds.

Building and Grounds Crew

We always need help keeping our outdoor areas tidy and cared for. If you like to work outdoors, we can use you!

Community Outreach

Have fun with others reaching out in the community! Assist with special events, fundraisers, and community projects. You can sign on to one event, or many!

Foster Families

Some of our animals need to be in foster homes because they need socialization or special care. Would you be willing to temporarily open your home to an SPCA animal in need? If so, please join our Foster Family Team!

Questions?? Please contact Hannah at 207-667-8088, or email her at Volunteer@SPCAHancockCounty.org
