How do I become a volunteer?

With the dedicated assistance of our volunteers, the Placer SPCA is able to maintain high quality care of the animals and continue its life-saving work through innovative programs and services to the community. If you love animals and would like to make a difference in their lives, we would love for you to join our team of dedicated volunteers.

In order to become a volunteer at the Placer SPCA, you must attend a Volunteer Orientation class. The class includes a presentation about the history of the Placer SPCA, our Mission and Vision, animal success stories, and the many ways caring volunteers can make a difference in the lives of homeless animals. The class will conclude with a tour of the Roseville facility.

If you decide that the Placer SPCA is the right volunteer fit for you, you will be invited to complete a volunteer application. A $25 materials fee ($35 for junior teams) will be collected at this time, which will cover the cost of a t-shirt, name badge and all training materials needed for your volunteer service.

Please complete a volunteer application and bring it with you to orientation.
