- To volunteer at our location in Danville, fill out our Danville application!
- To volunteer at our location in Lancaster, fill out our Lancaster application!
The volunteer program for our Philadelphia locations is on hold as we work on improvements and streamlining. We expect to begin taking applications again on April 15.
*If you are looking to volunteer in Philadelphia, please do not submit an application for Danville or Lancaster as these are separate programs.
Step 1: Complete an application.
This application helps our staff understand your passions and skills in order to find the best fit for you at our organization.
Once we review your application, we will follow up with you via email with next steps in the volunteer process. The review process for your application can take up to a week once submitted.
Please note that incomplete applications will not be accepted.
Step 2: Schedule and attend a Volunteer Orientation
Once you application is reviewed and accepted, you will be invited to attend an upcoming Volunteer Orientation. Our Volunteer Orientation is an interactive learning experience where you get to learn about the volunteer opportunities the PSPCA has to offer, as well as spend some time with our animal residents!
Step 3: Schedule and attend Shelter Essentials and Animal Handling Trainings
Once you complete Volunteer Orientation, you will be invited to schedule shelter essentials training and animal handling classes for our canine and feline residents. Based on your interests, we can also get you set up to attend department-specific trainings to specialize in those areas of our shelter.
