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! For all other inquiries, e-mail volunteer@greatplainsspca.org for more information.

Attend an orientation to learn more about how YOU can get involved!

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.
National Volunteer Week 2019

National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week is a time to celebrate the impact of volunteer service on our communities. The local events, volunteer projects and social media conversations that take place during this week demonstrate that every individual has the power to create change – taking action to tackle society’s greatest challenges, and build stronger, more resilient communities.

National Volunteer Week kicks off on April 7, 2019, with Good Deeds Day, global day of service that unites people from more than 100 countries to do good deeds for the benefit of others and the planet. Good Deeds Day is an opportunity to start National Volunteer Week by coming together with friends, family, neighbors and colleagues to do good in your community.

Volunteers are vital to our success. We will be showing our appreciation for all the volunteers our community, starting April, 7th. April is also National Volunteer month. Thank you for all who contribute their time and energy!
