Volunteer Age Requirements

Great Plains SPCA is committed to creating families and helping people of all ages experience the true joy pets bring into our lives. The following opportunities are available to enrich the lives of youth in our community.

Children ages 6 and up can volunteer in the shelter alongside a parent volunteer. Opportunities outside the shelter include holding donation drives and more. See our Donation Wish Lists.

Children 11 and up can volunteer alongside a parent volunteer who handles the animals – children may interact but parent must be in control of and responsible for both child and animal at all times.

Children 16 and up may volunteer independently once a waiver signed by a parent/guardian is submitted.
