The Sullivan County SPCA has dedicated volunteers helping us help the animals. Without these compassionate, caring people, we couldn’t continue our efforts on behalf of the animals. Just a couple hours of week can make a difference in an animal’s life. Please see the following list of opportunities. There is something to suit every interest and skill!
Direct Animal Care
Assist staff in the daily care of cats, dogs, and farm animals. These duties can include cleaning cages, helping with feeding, socializing with the animals, cat cuddling, horse socializing, and general cleaning in all areas of the shelter.
Get your exercise while making a dog smile! These volunteers give the dogs a short break from their kennels by taking them on a 10 minute walk. Lots of experience with dogs? Take a big, energy filled dog out for a fun-filled jaunt and help him learn his walking manners! Or maybe you’d like something a little quieter? Take one of our smaller dogs, or dogs have already learned to walk like a polite doggie. A member of our staff will help you choose.
Mobile Adoptions & Special Event Assistance
If you’re a People Person AND an Animal Person, then this is the job for you! Held at various locations throughout the area, volunteers work to find homes for the animals by taking them to special adopt-a-thon events throughout the area.
Front Desk Assistance
Are you an organized person who doesn’t mind talking to strangers?
We could use your help at the front desk! Answer phones, take cruelty reports,lost & found reports and assist the public with general questions/directions. You must be 18 years or older for this position.
VOLUNTEER YOUR SERVICES
Do you have a skill that you can volunteer? Professional help from contractors, plumbers, electricians, lawyers, accountants, dog trainers, experienced farm workers, facility maintenance pros is expensive for us! If you have a skill and some extra time that you would be willing to donate, please let us know…it would be greatly appreciated!
