Volunteer Program

Volunteers are a vital part of the Lycoming County SPCA. Without them, we would not be able to perform many of the functions at our shelter. Because of the sensitive nature of our work and the potential liability involved, the SPCA accepts volunteers ages 14 and over.

We are always looking for eager volunteers to assist with the shelter animals and the everyday responsibilities of shelter life. Whether you are interested in walking dogs, socializing cats, office work, or special events, we have something for you. 

Please complete the Volunteer Application. Once you submit the application, our Volunteer Manager will contact you. 

SPECIAL NOTE: Volunteering for personal enrichment and performing court ordered community service are not the same. If you are required to perform community service and wish to do so at the SPCA, please contact the shelter and inquire about our community service program.
