Meet & Greet

To learn more about the East Bay SPCA and our volunteer program, we offer regular Meet & Greet Sessions throughout the year. Think of this as an all-access backstage pass to meet your favorite band. Except the rock stars may be a little furry! In these one-hour sessions, you’ll learn more about our mission and how we help homeless animals and their human companions in our communities. We’ll also cover important details about how our volunteer program works.

All prospective volunteers are required to attend a Meet & Greet Session. Learn more about our current volunteer opportunities.

We need the most help on weekday mornings from 8:00am-10:00am.
Weekends are always in high demand.
