IMMEDIATE VOLUNTEER NEEDS FOR ADULTS 18 AND OLDER.
Opportunities for youth service, college internships, and Paws for Love therapy pet visitation can be found by scrolling to the bottom of this page. Unless otherwise indicated, volunteer work takes place at the SPCA Serving Erie County, 300 Harlem Road in West Seneca, New York.

If making a significant difference in the lives of shelter animals is something you’re passionate about, volunteering with the SPCA might be one of the most fulfilling parts of your life!

Depending on what volunteer position you decide is right for you, you’ll have the opportunity to provide compassionate care for animals, bring pets and families together, and perform purpose-driven work! 

Our goal at the SPCA Serving Erie County is to be a diverse and inclusive workforce that is representative of the community we serve in the most effective way possible. All volunteer assignments are decided based on qualifications, merit, and business need. 

Help us change lives!

*NOTE: The SPCA is unable to offer court-ordered adult and youth community service opportunities at this time.
