Opportunities for Groups: Applies to all ages

Are you part of a scout, school, work, neighborhood or other group that’s interested in taking on a project that helps animals in our community? Two areas of great need are our Wish List and Feral Cat Colony Caretaking.

  • Wish List volunteer groups may conduct drives to help stock items that are essential to keep our humane center running smoothly. Learn more.
  • Feral Cat Colony volunteer groups may adopt a feral cat colony and help to feed the cats and humanely trap them so that they may be brought to the Richmond SPCA for spaying or neutering and vaccinations, and returned to their habitat. For more information about this volunteer opportunity, please call 804-521-1312.

Opportunities that do not require Volunteer Orientation:

  • Group Projects Listed Above
