Volunteer and Help Save Lives


SPCA of Northern Nevada volunteers donate their time, compassion, and talent to make every day special for the animals waiting for their loving homes. Volunteers are the backbone of our organization and help fulfill our mission within the adoption center, thrift store, and in the community.

All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older. Minors are able to volunteer with a parent or guardian present at all times. Minors must be at least 8 years old to interact with the cats, 12 to interact with the dogs, and 15 to help out at our Thrift Store (all with a parent or guardian present).

If you are a student volunteering to complete hours for an academic requirement of any kind and would like to accumulate your hours socializing with our animals you must contribute a minimum of 20 hours. There are other opportunities available to complete scholastic hours if that time commitment doesn’t work for you. Please reach out to the Volunteer Manager for more information.

Thank you for considering donating your time and love to the SPCA of Northern Nevada!
