Junior Volunteer Program

Youth Volunteer Opportunities

Children under the age of 13 do not volunteer directly with the animals at the Placer SPCA. However, there are many ways that children can earn community service hours by doing projects that benefit the animals. For more information, please visit the Community Service page.


Become a Junior Team

If you are between 13-17 years of age, you may enter our Junior Volunteer Program as a Junior Team with a parent or legal guardian. As a Junior Team, you may participate in most volunteer opportunities, including training, dog walking, and cat or critter socialization.

The Junior Volunteer Program requires the complete participation of your parent or legal guardian. Your parent or legal guardian must be present at all times, including Volunteer Orientation, all training sessions, and at all times during volunteer service.
