Group Volunteering

Does your team, group, or organization want to become part of the solution to the problem of homeless and neglected companion animals in our community? SPCA Florida welcomes groups of as little as 5 to as many as 30 who are looking to complete a service project together. AS part of your project, you will experience a “behind the scenes” tour of SPCA Florida’s Animal Medical Center and Adoption Center. To reserve your group project and tour, contact the volunteer department at [email protected].

Thank you again for your interest in volunteering with SPCA Florida. We truly appreciate your desire to make a change in Polk County. Together, we will make strides in saving homeless and neglected companion animals in our community.
