The Louisiana SPCA can occasionally accommodate group volunteer requests (no more than 10-15 people) for a day of service at the shelter facility with adequate advance notice. A sample of activities our groups have completed is below. Additionally, we can always use group help at our major fundraising events.


Sample group activities

  • Gardening/Cleaning courtyards: weeding, raking, and picking up litter; cleaning and sweeping and assisting the maintenance and facilities team

  • Administration: making packets of information, making copies, participating in phone banks

  • Animal Enrichment Program: making Kongs for the dogs to enjoy, crafting bandannas for the animals to wear, putting catnip treats together

  • Event Set-Up - Preparation, support and break down

  • Other: Unfolding newspaper, sorting through donations, organize storage areas and the food pantry
