Sacramento SPCA
February 11, 2011

I have spent some of the most rewarding hours of my life volunteering at the SPCA.

I love taking dogs out in the morning for one-on-one time. I will groom them, walk an extra lap, or just sit and let them be near - whatever they want - in order to make their (hopefully) brief stay more enjoyable.

It warms my heart to see so many animal-loving volunteers show up throughout the day to do the same.

As a Foster parent, I can convalesce a dog like no other. I take advantage of our time together and work on Basic Obedience skills, in hopes of making them more adoptable upon return.

The permanent staff at the SPCA are very kind and most helpful to volunteers like myself who can't show up on a regular basis, but need guidance or assistance when I do. The Director has a very open-mind and always listens to volunteer suggestions, and does what he can to implement them; he is aware we all work towards SSPCA's common goal.

If you have a few extra hours a week and are looking for a rewarding experience - this is the place to be. And that's the fact, Jack!
