Thank you so much for your interest in our volunteer program! Every animal shelter, humane society, and SPCA is different, so we have tailored our volunteer program to best suit the needs of our organization and the animals we serve. We've researched how best to decrease stress, increase comfort, and help animals learn good manners while awaiting their forever homes.
The Volunteer Orientation covers some basic information about the RHSPCA, logistics of the program, and humane training and handling techniques for animals awaiting adoption. Typically, orientation lasts about 1 hour and 30 minutes, including a tour of the adoptable pet areas and technique demonstrations. Pre-registration is required, as seating is limited.
