Due to Covid-19, volunteer opportunities at Delaware SPCA are on hold. We will contact all interested volunteers as soon as our programs resume. Thank you for understanding.

Volunteers are an essential part of Delaware SPCA’s lifesaving community. Our growing volunteer program places volunteers in nearly every department:


  • Dog Kennels & Cattery: Cleaning, socialization, training, and enrichment
  • Shelter Essentials: Laundry, dishes, and other supportive efforts
  • Community Engagement: Events, fundraising, photography, and more
  • Administrative & Clerical: Help with data entry, phones, and technology

Get Started

  • Attend a volunteer orientation session.
  • Commit to a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly volunteer shift.
  • Complete training, purchase a volunteer shirt, and welcome aboard!
