Description:
While most shelters require volunteers to be 18 years of age or older, the San Francisco SPCA is able to extend the opportunity to young volunteers to make a big impact in their community. Volunteer hours are earned, alongside points for cool things like SF SPCA swag, animal time, and even the opportunity to join our adult shelter volunteer program (for high school students).

Elementary and Middle schoolers must attend orientation with their guardian. High schoolers do not need a guardian at orientation. All participants must attend the Humane Hero Orientation: Orientations are monthly during weekday evenings- students and parent must attend the orientation to become a Humane Hero and begin building hours and points. Registration is required. Donation Drop-Ins are also monthly on Fridays and Saturdays. These times are for Humane Heroes to drop off any collected dontions, tell us about their experiences in the community, get hours signed off, collect points, and recieve prizes. Donation Drop-Ins will also include animal time. (Text is taken or adapted from official program website)
