Donate Your Time

At the Maryland SPCA, we are proud to have the support of many wonderful volunteers who put their concern for animal welfare into action by donating their time. Our dedicated volunteers make a commitment to help our organization and touch the lives of pets and people every day. Our volunteers are invaluable to us. They help save animals’ lives.

MD SPCA volunteers must be 17 years of age or older, even if a parent or other adult is able to volunteer too.
