Absolutely loved volunteering there.
volunteer at the Dublin (Former Employee), Dublin, DSeptember 21, 2014
All of the public that would come in were all so friendly. It was sad seeing some of the animals that would come in that were very skinny and left for dead. I am a very big animal person.

Helpful place to work, very fun and comfortable
Volunteer (Former Employee), Fresno caAugust 20, 2014
A typical day would be walking the dogs and feeding them after washing all their bowls and washing their cages. Then we would go and do laundry and make sure everything was prepared for the next 6 hours in which we would have to do it again. Then we would go and do the same for cats. Ive learned that there are a lot of animals in need of help and that – more... although it is hard to take good care of an animal it is very well worth having the love and companionship and animal provides. The hardest part of the day would probably be washing up the cages because overnight they were a little messy. But the most enjoyable part was to get to spend time with all those animals and helped them feel loved. – less

Great place to volunteer to gain experience
Volunteer dog walker (Former Employee), Dallas, TXAugust 13, 2014
I volunteered here for a short time, but in that time I worked with dogs in walking and exercising them and cleaning their kennels. Basic stuff. If the veterinarians or technicians needed extra set of hands they would call you. Really great variety of people in the work environment, very knowledgeable and kind to the clients.

Dog Walker
Volunteer Assistant (Former Employee), Reno, NVAugust 5, 2014
Pros: working with animals
Cons: people not adopting animals
A typical day at SPCA can be fun, and challenging. I learned to have more patience than ever before. And I also learned how to train aggressive breeds of dogs. The most enjoyable part of this job. Was seeing dogs learn to begin to trust people again. And seeing them get adopted.

Pros: you get to spend time with all kinds of animals and play with them.

volunteer (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAJune 18, 2014
Pros: friendly employees
Cons: n/a
A typical day at work was fun energizing creative and loving. I have learn that all the animals have different types of needs and needed to be taken care of in different ways. The management was very nice and organized. my co-workers was friendly, helpful, and encouraging. the hardest part of the job was not being able to help out with all the animals, – more... you had to be a certain age to help with certain animals. The most enjoying part of the job was seeing that the animals had finally found a loving family to go home too. – less

Lively and very Welcoming
Virginia Beach SPCA Volunteer (Former Employee), VAJune 8, 2014
The employees at the VBSPCA greet you with a smile and treat all types of animals that walk in with great care, as well as handle them correctly based on the various personalities. The shelter is very clean and well kept, and they front desk always keeps the animal treat jar filled.

The other areas of the shelter constantly have activities, volunteer – more... work, or events posted for their customers to get active and participate.

The most enjoyable and hardest part of the job is seeing a pets transformation from not being adoptable, to waving goodbye as it leaves with its new family. – less

Great environment, and nice people.
Volunteer West Lane Bingo Hall (Current Employee), 2538 West Ln, Stockton, ca 95205May 10, 2014
Pros: customers, breaks, co-workers
Cons: angry customers.
Fast work pace, meeting the goal makes me feel good. I learned how to work with difficult customers, also how to be patient. The management is very accommodating as well as my co-workers, it's a fun but professional environment. I would have to say the hardest part of the job would be counting the money and hoping that I don't come up short, which also – more... the most enjoyable because once the money is counted and comes up right it's very satisfying that I can accomplish something without being told exactly what to do. – less

Volunteer (Current Employee), Williamsport, PAMarch 12, 2014
Pros: working with animals, cause i love them.
Cons: very hot some days, aggressive dogs.
The hardest part of this job was that some of the bigger dogs were very very aggressive. They would fly out of there cages and get out and away from me all the time. There is just no calming down a dog that has not ever had attention.

Great Place to volunteer
Volunteer (Current Employee), Sanford, FLDecember 19, 2013
Pros: relaxed atmosphere
Everyone is always willing to answer questions. There is always something new to learn, and opportunities to improve the facility.
Typically I walk 4-6 dogs and introduce 3-5 to potential adoptive families. I have learned that every animal gets lots of attention and care at this facility. The most difficult part of the job is saying goodbye to the pets – more... that get adopted, because one gets attached to them. This is short lived though because they are going to great homes. – less
