COVID-19 Update: The New Hampshire SPCA values the continued support of the community; especially those who volunteer their time to help animals in need. Social distancing and limiting physical interactions help stop the spread of the virus. Because of this, the NHSPCA has suspended our volunteer services (including new volunteer recruitment and training) to limit the amount of people at our facility. This is done for the safety of our staff and ultimately the animals.
We hope to resume volunteer services when it is safe to do so, and we will update the website when that happens. Thank you for your continued support!
The NHSPCA depends greatly on over 700 volunteers who donate their time and talent to help the animals. Without volunteers, we could not accomplish or advance our mission. Improving the welfare of animals is a big job. But every little thing you do to help solve the problems of overpopulation, cruelty, neglect and irresponsible pet ownership counts. The NHSPCA Volunteer Program will give you the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a difference in the lives of all animals.
Volunteers need to be a minimum of 16 years of age to assist with direct animal care. The signature of a parent or guardian is required for individuals under age 18. For more information regarding volunteer activities for persons under age 16, contact our Humane Education Coordinator at 603-772-2921 ext. 113. Or visit our Junior Volunteer page.
We require that all volunteers commit to contributing a minimum of 6 months of service and a minimum of 4 hours per month. A knowledgeable and trained person that volunteers consistently is truly a benefit to the animals in our care.
