Want to Volunteer?

Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization and we would not be able to serve community pets without the much-needed support of our dedicated volunteers!

If you are interested in volunteering with Great Plains SPCA, please e-mail volunteer@greatplainsspca.org for more information.

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 15 and younger: we love our Junior Volunteers! Our Junior Volunteers are able to assist with watering, enrichment, and various operational and sanitation tasks around the shelter.

    Our Junior Volunteers are not able to physically handle animals themselves, but they are able to assist their parent/legal guardian in doing so. The parent/legal guardian is responsible for following policies and procedures, attending animal handling trainings, and ensuring the Junior Volunteer is following rules set forth by the organization.  The adult-to-child ratio must be 1:1.

    Opportunities outside the shelter include holding donation drives and more. See our Donation Wish Lists.

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