The RISPCA thrives on the hard work of its many dedicated volunteers.We appreciate all that you do for the Society and the many animals we serve. We thank you for your support!
Each year we present some of our most dedicated volunteers with the Special People Caring for Animals (SPCA) Award. These volunteers have spent countless hours over the last year working for the animals in a wide variety of tasks. Without the help of dedicated individuals like these, we wouldn’t be able to carry on our work as well as we do. Thank you all!
Best Volunteer Group!
Thanks to your dedication to volunteering, we are proud to announce that in 2009 the Rhode Island SPCA was voted best volunteer group by readers of the Animal Print magazine for the third year in a row. Keep up the good work!
Volunteer Appreciation Dinner
Every December the RISPCA hosts a holiday dinner for all of our wonderful volunteers here at the shelter. The auditorium is decked out with pine boughs and decorations, and a huge array of delicious appetizers, entrees and desserts are provided by a caterer. We truly appreciate all the hours put in by our volunteers, and this is our way of saying thanks!
