The SPCA Serving Erie County is so fortunate to receive all of the community support that we do in the form of volunteers. We are so grateful to our 1500+  adult volunteers (age 18+ years old) for all that they do. At this time, we do not have any adult volunteer opportunities available and our waiting list is full. Please check back to our website often for future volunteer opportunities. - June 30, 2017
