Enriching lives & ending pet homelessness


Winchester Area SPCA & Thrift Shop

The Winchester Area SPCA is a 501c3 nonprofit that relies on a strong volunteer force. Volunteer opportunities are available for those age 16 and over at the WASPCA thrift shop. Those 18 and over may volunteer at the WSPCA adoption center and assist with our cat housing units located inside Petco of Winchester.

All WASPCA volunteers are required to become Fear Free Shelters Certified. There is no charge to the volunteer to receive this certification.

To volunteer, please complete our online application form or download a printable volunteer application form. Downloaded forms can be returned to volunteercoordinator@winchesterspca.org. The volunteer coordinator’s office is located at the WASPCA Adoption Center 111  Featherbed Lane or call 540-662-8616.
