At this time, the Maryland SPCA is only accepting applications for individuals completing court-ordered community service. We have yet to determine when we will onboard new volunteers.
We’ll provide more updates as they become available. Thank you for understanding!
Benefits of Volunteering
Increased satisfaction from making a difference in the lives of homeless (or shelter) pet.

Deeper understanding of animal care and behavior.
Reduced stress levels.
The first step to getting started as a volunteer at the Maryland SPCA is to attend a volunteer orientation session. Orientations are held twice a month at the MD SPCA. At orientation, prospective volunteers are invited to learn more about the MD SPCA, volunteer policies, and how you can get involved.
