Volunteer Opportunities with the Yolo County SPCA

                

Placement Volunteers (Must be 10+)
Getting involved in our animal placement/animal adoption events is one easy, but really rewarding way to volunteer for us. Volunteers help sit with adoptable dogs at our adoption site, help with set-up and clean-up of the site for dogs and cats, and help with all sorts of things that come up each Saturday that we hold our adoptions. Currently, we are holding adoption/placement events at the Davis Petco most Saturdays, (we often take one Saturday off a month), and volunteer help is needed from 11:30am until 4:30pm. Volunteers are not required to help all day, nor every week. Placement volunteers make it possible for us to showcase our adoptable animals out in public and make a huge difference in getting our animals adopted!

Foster Homes
Not sure you are ready to make a lifetime commitment to a pet? Try fostering dogs or cats! Our foster homes provide care and housing for animals in the Yolo County community on a short-term basis. They serve as temporary guardians for homeless animals awaiting adoption into permanent, loving homes. We provide supplies and vet care. Foster parents provide time, energy, some transportation and love!

See our Dog Foster Home Video and Cat Foster Home Video!

Thrift Store (Must be 16+)
These volunteers' duties range from processing donations, to assisting the public, to helping with the output and organization of clothes. Since the Thrift Store is our main source of funding, along with donations, our on site volunteers are extremely important. We ask that these volunteers are at least 16 years of age. Volunteer shifts are not assigned but scheduled by you and generally must be longer than one hour. Click here for the forms needed to be a Thrift Store volunteer.

Community (Feral) Cats
We are starting some new projects locally to humanely reduce the Community Cat population.  Some possible ways to help include feeding at colonies that are already spayed/neutered, helping get cats in to vet appointments, or donating food for this cause.   Please contact us for details on how you can help.

Educational Material

Do you live in an apartment complex with a bulletin board, or go to a community center where information can be posted?  One of the reasons whey there is pet overpopulation is a lack of information.  If you'd like to post local low-cost spay/neuter options, feral cat information, Yolo County SPCA pets of the month, or have other information you'd like to share with your part of the community, please let us know.

Special Skills

Do you have a skill or profession that doesn't seem like it relates to animals?  If you are willing to donate your time, let us know about it anyway!  From Real Estate Agents, Lawyers, Artists, to Teachers, and all other professions, we would love to know your skill and that you are willing to donate time to help animals in need. Even if we can't use your skills to help animals right away, knowing who to contact if a need arises is wonderful.  Help us channel more of our non-profit's resources straight to animals, and to fundraise for animals.

Other Rescue Groups

If some of these things interest you, but you are looking for even more ways to help, please let us know.  We can help direct you to special events going on to help animals or clinics that need assistance through other groups like Sacramento Area Animal Coalition or Sacramento SPCA.
