Why become a volunteer?
Bucks County SPCA volunteers realize that a little bit of time goes a long way. Volunteering your time doesn't always mean a trip to the shelter. The Bucks County SPCA relies on volunteers to help with fundraising efforts, community outreach, education, gardening, as well as animal care through socialization and training. We also have ways for you to help from home. Besides, volunteering is a great way to meet other people who have the same interests as you! So check it out today and spend a little bit of your time making a big difference.
Different Ways to Get Involved
Help From Home:
Did you know you can help the SPCA right from the comforts our your home? Check out the section on Help From Home for a list of ways to volunteer right now. If you sew, bake, like to write, email or shop, you can help your local animal shelter.
In the Community/Fundraising:
The Bucks County SPCA relies on the generous donations of community members, people like yourselves. Fundraisers are held throughout the year to help offset some of the cost of helping the animals, and we rely on volunteers to help staff these events. Often, there is no training required to help at these events. Please check Event Calendar or our home page to see a list of fundraisers or upcoming events. We would love your help or just attend to show your support!
At the Shelter:
We need you help to welcome visitors as a greeter, educate the public about SPCA services and socialize and train adoptable animals as an animal care volunteer (18yrs +). Some volunteer opportunities require a volunteer application. For additional information about individual volunteer programs or to download a volunteer application, see Volunteer Programs. Volunteer application can also be picked up at the shelter or at community events. Completed applications can be mailed in, dropped off or faxed to (215) 794-2750.
*Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or gaurdian to volunteer at BCSPCA. Parents/gaurdians will be required to attend an orientation with their child. There are a limited number of parent/child volunteer teams available during the year.
