Civilian and Law Enforcement Volunteers

We are currently seeking Advisory Board members, special event coordinators and humane education and administrative volunteers. Accredited internship, work study and high school community service opportunities are also available. Please contact the administration office for more information or email info@countyspca.org.


We are always looking for volunteers to help with our humane education and humane law enforcement divisions.  We receive a disproportionate number of requests to volunteer in our Law Enforcement Division.  Volunteers for our Humane Law Enforcement Division must undergo a detailed background investigation before being accepted.  Conviction of a felony, any sexual offense, any domestic violence offense, or any offense involving drugs, firearms, or force is an automatic disqualifier. Other convictions to include numerous traffic infractions may result in your disqualification. You must be of good moral character.  Applicants interested in the 2011 Humane Law Enforcement Academy are encouraged to fill out the Volunteer Application and Background Check authorization and mail or email the completed forms to:

Schenectady County SPCA
P.O. Box 9516
Niskayuna, NY 12309

Our Humane Education Division is just as important if not more so in preventing Animal Cruelty then our Law Enforcement Division. The SPCA’s evolving humane education program promotes empathy and compassion for all species and examines the impact our personal and cultural choices have on other people, animals and the earth.  Humane Educators are available to the community for lectures, seminars, and presentations on a variety of topics.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with the Schenectady County SPCA, please fill out the Volunteer Application and Background Check authorization and mail or email the completed forms to: info@countyspca.org.
