Under 18 and want to volunteer? Great! We have options for kids of all ages who want to help the SF SPCA!

  • Kids ages 4 - 18 can participate in our new Humane Heroes Program! This program has kids helping the SF SPCA in their own community, with monthly meetings (with animal friends), and the opportunity to win great prizes (like SF SPCA gear, animal time, and the option for High School students to join our adult shelter volunteer program!).
  • 6th-12th graders can sign up for our on-site volunteer opportunity through our Community Service Day Program!
  • We occasionally have space for High School volunteers who can come for weekly shifts to care for our Humane Education Animals. This includes cleaning, feeding, bathing, and socializing animals such as pigeons, guinea pigs, chinchillas, and more! If you are interested in joining this small but mighty group of volunteers, please email us: humaneeducation@sfspca.org. Please note that this program is completely full. If you are still interested, please email us, and we will add you to the waiting list- likely to open next semester.
