The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals cares for stray or abandoned animals regardless of age, health, temperament, or species and helps to find them new homes


At the Peninsula SPCA, we are always in need of volunteers who are ready to make a difference in the lives of our animals. We are committed to cultivating a strong and mutually beneficial volunteer program.  Please take a look at the descriptions of the volunteer opportunities to see if one is the right fit for you!
