In response to the emerging events surrounding COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus disease-19), New Hampshire SPCA has taken steps to reduce the number of individuals coming to the agency. These steps include the suspension of all New Volunteer training as well as Volunteer Orientations. We hope to resume both of these as soon as it is deemed safe, and we are continually monitoring information from Local and National Public Health agencies.
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.
