Become a Volunteer
Compassionate, dedicated animal loving volunteers are the heart of GASPCA, and they are needed in all areas of our shelter and beyond.
Our greatest needs are in helping socialize the cats and dogs of our shelter, as well as keeping their areas clean. The dogs love going on walks and the cats love to be petted!
Another rewarding opportunity is fostering animals who need special care because they are sick, too young or need socialization training until they are suitable for adoption.
To become a Georgia SPCA foster, fill out this online foster application.You will be contacted by our Foster Coordinator shortly after submitting your application. .
We also have many opportunities to be out in the public and talk about our mission and help facilitate adoptions, like at our annual Run4Rescues.
GASPCA has a strong commitment to the people and pets we serve, and we ask for an equally strong commitment form the volunteers who work with us.
All GASPCA volunteers go through an application and orientation process before beginning their service. We ask that our volunteers make a minimum 6-month commitment to our animals and our mission.
Once you have joined our team you will build relationships with like-minded people in our community. You will learn to work with our animals, help facilitate their adoption into new loving forever homes and extend our reach into the community by representing GASPCA programs at off-site activities and special events.
If accepted into the program, further instructions for scheduling an orientation will be sent to the email you provide.
A $20 fee is charged to help offset the cost of training and volunteer supplies ( t-shirt and volunteer handbook) at the time you reserve a spot in an orientation.
*You must be at least 18 years of age to apply
NOTE: There is a separate program/system for people who need verified community service hours, see here .
