For individuals 18 years and older interested in volunteering at our Central PA location in Danville, we welcome you to our sister branch in rural Pennsylvania! Volunteers are an incredibly valuable part of small but mighty Danville team.
Step 1: Complete an application.
PSPCA @ Danville volunteers are invited to complete our volunteer application. This application provides our staff with information specific to your individual interests and skills set. Complete our online application today!
Step 2: Attend an Orientation.
Orientation is an introductory session where volunteers learn about our organization, community offerings, and how you can support us in our mission. This 2 hour session also includes basic training to get you set and ready to start almost immediately!
Step 3: Schedule and attend Shelter Essentials shifts.
Following Orientation, you will be invited to schedule hours as a Shelter Essentials Attendant. Essentials activities are the tasks that keep our shelter running every day; they are “essential” to our success. These projects can include washing laundry, cleaning dishes, building cat boxes, making treats, and more.
Step 4: Schedule and attend Animal Handling Trainings and/or specialized tracks.
After completing the initial Shelter Essentials shifts, you will be invited to advance to handling classes for our dog and cat shelter residents. Based on your passions and specialized skills, you may also schedule trainings and/or volunteer shifts in other areas (i.e. events, veterinary medicine).
**We apologize for the inconvenience, but we do not currently have a program for individuals under the age of 18 at our Danville location.
