Make a difference in the lives of animals!  SPCA volunteers are an integral part of our mission.

On any given day, our volunteers are:

  • Socializing shy animals by spending time with them
  • Exercising dogs by walking them on our campus or playing in our enclosed outdoor run
  • Cleaning cages, caring for cats and playing matchmaker by introducing cats to adopters at our adoption center
  • Representing the Winchester SPCA at community events to spread the word on how to help the area’s homeless, neglected & abused animals
  • Providing shelter tours to various groups
  • Visiting elementary school children to teach about compassion and humane animal care
  • Assisting our office staff with mailings
  • Bringing home a new foster kitten, cat or dog and providing much-needed care
  • Working at one of our many special fundraising events, such as PawFest or the Tails in My Beer Blast
  • Assisting our thrift shop staff with sorting donations and helping customers
