Fredericksburg SPCA



We have over 500 active volunteers and foster parents to help us with following through in our mission. There are a variety of tasks our volunteers help out with every day and we would love for you to join the Fred SPCA Volunteer/Foster Family! 

In order to remain an active volunteer you must complete at least 2 hours of volunteer service a month or let our volunteer coordinator know. There is a $20 fee to volunteer with us and you get a cool SPCA Volunteer t-shirt as well. Please be mindful that when you are a volunteer with us, you represent the SPCA so it is important to be kind, thoughtful and meaningful through all interactions at the SPCA. 

If you need to complete Court Ordered Community Service hours please email to get the extra application. This is important because without completing this form we will not be able to give you a letter or appreciation for your hours spent volunteering with us.

Signing up to volunteer with my daughter
Filled out the volunteer form for my child to complete a school project. He is available on the weekends. Thanks. Let me know what you have available for him.
I have reapplied today ( September 29th 2019),and would love to help out in any way I can. Over a year ago, I helped clean the cat viewing rooms and cleaned dog and cat laundry with you all. I would love to volunteer again, especially with the work I performed the last time I was here. It is lovely to see how much the volunteer opportunities have developed since the last time I worked here! As a beloved pet owner for all of my life, it would be such a joy for me to work with you all again.
Hello to the Fredericksburg SPCA!

Good day and evening to all! I just created an account, and downloaded the volunteer handbook as well. I believe the form I completed is the volunteer application. If not, please let me know what else I need to do. I'd be happy to assist with daily operations and cleaning. Thank you for ALL that you do for our community and our animals!

I have applied and would love to volunteer! I love animals and have many of my own!
I have just applied, What ever you guys need done, I will help. I have a few animals that we rescued that now live better than me. I have a light golden, that's allergic to everyone poor girl, but meds are given every day that help. So I'm use to giving extra care. — Patty Smet Patty Smet on June 11, 2019
