How to Volunteer

Want to do good in your community and get a regular furry-friend fix? Become a volunteer at the Tulsa SPCA! We rely on people like you to help us with our day-to-day operations, adoptions processing, dog and cat socialization, mobile adoption events, and more!

When you volunteer at the Tulsa SPCA, you’re joining a family of volunteers and staff committed to providing love and support for the homeless cats and dogs in our care. As a volunteer, you’ll be helping homeless animals receive the loving care and second chances for happiness they deserve. Below are the different volunteer opportunities we offer.

To volunteer, please:

  • Make sure you meet our volunteer requirements
  • Submit a volunteer application online (see below)
  • Attend an orientation session available every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday between 12:00 and 5:00 at our main location on Mohawk Blvd.
  • Complete all final paperwork following orientation
  • Sign up for shifts online and help us achieve our mission!

HAPPY TAIL! "Everyone has been settling in great with Thumper. We ended up keeping her name. It’s so cute and unique. LOL The kids absolutely LOVE her, but she seems to have taken to my 12-year-old son the most. He gets home from school and she’ll just curl up next to him and throw a paw over his arm haha! ...

Little Thelma is a shy and confused as to how she ended up at the shelter with her siblings. She's never lived indoors before and is finding all the noise and commotion in the shelter quite overwhelming. She sometimes hides and other times barks at everything that goes by her kennel. Thelma is a dog in need of some confidence and routine to put her on the right path to successful indoor companion animal! A patient, kind and relaxed human who can slowly introduce her to the big world is exactly her style. Because of her fear, she is looking for a home without young children. She might be able to live with another friendly dog, but would need a slow introduction and a safe place to call her own for the first few weeks. She would do best in a quiet home, with a secure backyard. If you are the hero that Thelma needs apply today to foster or adopt her! We can't wait to see what a wonderful and loving dog she blossoms into! Thelma is 6 months old and only 16 lbs, so she will stay quite small! She has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and is current on parasite prevention. Visit tulsaspca.org/adoptable dogs to apply to adopt Thelma! If you are interested in fostering, visit tulsaspca.org/become-foster-parent ...
