Volunteer Opportunities

The Delaware SPCA is looking for highly motivated and energetic volunteers to donate their time on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays between the hours of 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

All volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and complete an online application. Upon confirmation and approval of your application, you will be able to begin your volunteer experience.

Please note: Walk-ins will not be accommodated.

All volunteers should be prepared to take direction from staff as well as demonstrate initiative and work independently as needed. We also would appreciate at least a two-hour block of your time when you volunteer.

We are in need of volunteers to assume specific essential tasks. Although you may be asked by staff to perform other tasks as needed, please be prepared to donate your time:

  • doing laundry
  • sorting donations
  • washing dishes
  • cleaning areas

As our needs change, our volunteer opportunities will as well, so be on the lookout for other upcoming volunteer activities including: Handling animals, Adoption events, Vaccine clinics, Cemetery and grounds clean ups, Open house and Furry 5k Run/Walk!

Keep up to date with the latest opportunities on our Facebook page.

Please note: At this time, we cannot accommodate individuals in need of fulfilling community service hours.
