Upcoming Volunteer Info Sessions

The SF SPCA runs volunteer programs on both its Mission and Pacific Heights campuses. Please attend an information session on the campus where you wish to volunteer as the session is geared towards volunteering at that site.

Mission Campus

The Mission Campus has opportunities with Animal Assisted Therapy, the Community Cares Program, Foster, and Shelter Volunteering . For questions about the Mission campus please contact volunteers@sfspca.org or call 415-522-3523.

Please note: RSVPs are not required for Mission Campus information sessions. Doors will be locked 15 minutes after the session begins.

The Mission campus will not be hosting any additional session for 2015. Please check back next year.

Pacific Heights Campus:

The Pacific Heights campus is limited in the number of volunteers it is able to take on at a given time. We do our best to accept as many new volunteers as possible into the program, but cannot take everyone. If you apply and we do not have available volunteers slots, you either be placed on our waiting list or will be referred to the Mission Campus which can accommodate a larger number of new volunteers.

To volunteer on the Pacific Heights campus, please look below for the current shifts we are looking to fill. If you are able to commit to one of these shifts on a weekly basis, please email volunteerph@sfspca.org with that shift for more information. If none of these time slots work for you, please check back in 2016.
