NCSPCA Volunteers

When you spend time with the animals at the NCSPCA, you'll get back even more than you give!

We rely on volunteers to assist in our day-to-day operations at the shelter. Volunteers enhance our ability to provide enrichment to the animals in our care. Many adults and teens volunteer at the shelter to help make it the best possible alternative until a loving adoptive home can be found. 

Volunteer positions include: cleaning kennels and providing direct care, walking dogs, helping to socialize animals so they're ready for adoption, laundry and general cleaning, and MORE!

If you are interested in volunteering with us, please fill out an application and email it to volunteer@ncspca.org. Once your application has been received, you'll be contacted by our volunteer coordinator to set up a meeting and determine the best fit for you and the shelter.

We offer flexible scheduling options and on-site training with our staff.


Due to Covid, we are not currently scheduling new volunteer orientations. Please feel free to send in your volunteer application and we will keep it on file for when we can offer them again. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
