At the SPCAPV, we have lots of volunteer opportunities for dog lovers. For example:
- Come and visit the sanctuary and interact with the dogs. This helps us a lot in their socializing process. This you can do pretty much any day or time. But the sanctuary is in quite a remote location. Do you have a car?
- Twice a week we take our dogs to local parks or shopping centers to get them used to strangers, noises, kids, etc. and we need help walking them there. The more volunteers we have, the more dogs we can take there and this helps them a lot in their socializing process, too. This usually happens Sundays and Tuesdays.
- We need volunteers to help at our Spay/Neuter clinics organized every other week, Mondays and Tuesdays. Time commitment is from 8 am to 2 pm. If you can only do one day, not both, that´s ok too. It is helping to register the people who bring their pets and then doing the post-operation care, monitoring the dogs and cats until they come out of the anesthesia. If you have never done that, it´s no problem, as it is not difficult and you get taught everything there.
- We have started signing up volunteers for the Fall-Winter season who can help at our farmer´s market booth. We are at the Olas Altas Farmer´s market, every Saturday from November through April. We take donations and sell t-shirts and hats with our logo and such. Time commitment 8 am -2 pm. You can sign up for once a month, or more often, or less. Any day you can volunteer, helps us. It´s usually fun and you meet a lot of people.
If any of that speaks to you, please email us to email@example.com
