Volunteer Opportunities

We have a variety of volunteer opportunities at the East Bay SPCA! We ask that volunteers commit to a weekly two-hour shift and are able work with us for at least six months.


Our greatest need is for Animal Care Volunteers. These volunteers provide essential care to our animals to keep them happy and healthy. Tasks include feeding dogs and cats, sanitizing kennels and doing dishes and laundry.


Experienced Animal Care volunteers are eligible for additional volunteer activities, some which require additional specialized training, such as:

 

  • Canine and Feline Socialization & Enrichment
  • Customer Care
  • Behavior & Training
  • Jog-a-Dog Canine Exercise
  • Spay/Neuter Clinic Assistant
  • Vet Clinic Assistant

 

We also have other areas and programs where volunteers are greatly appreciated. You can make a great impact participating in volunteer opportunities such as: 

  • Marketing & Development
  • Photographer/Videographer
  • Event Coordination
  • Youth Programs
  • Offsite Events
