Volunteer Orientation

To learn more about volunteering at the East Bay SPCA, we offer regular orientation classes. All prospective volunteers are required to attend this Volunteer Orientation.

We ask that each volunteer commits to a two hour weekly shift and is able work with us for at least six months. Our available openings for weekend opportunities are currently limited. If you are interested please fill out our Volunteer Interest Form and we will be in touch with you if your interests and availability matches our needs.

Please note, both parents and children are required to complete separate applications.


After completing the orientation, if you have determined that this is the right place for you to volunteer, you will be able to begin your training. For most positions you need to wear an East Bay SPCA apron while volunteering. These aprons are $15 and are available to purchase at the Volunteer Orientation.
