For your health and safety and that of our staff, and the well-being of animals in our care, you need to be at least 16 years old to volunteer in an SPCA Centre. If you are younger than this, don’t worry – there are still plenty of ways you can support your local SPCA and help the animals in their care.
Check out all these fun things you can volunteer your time making and doing. By making enrichment toys and rags, fundraising, and donating much needed items, you're helping SPCA animals while they wait for their forever homes!
Enrichment toys are so important for SPCA animals as they can allow them to express their normal behaviours, one of the five freedoms that is essential for their well-being. Not only do they provide them with opportunities to play, but they keep their minds busy as well!
Remember - responsible guardianship starts at home so while you're making these toys for animals in need, why not make one for your animal companion as well?
Be sure to always supervise your animal while they're enjoying their enrichment!
