Animal Brigade Service Club

The Richmond SPCA’s Animal Brigade Service Club is a wonderful way for middle school students (grades 6 through 8) to learn more about their four-legged friends and how to help them through volunteer projects and humane education.

Our Animal Brigade Service Club holds a fall and spring session, each composed of six Saturday mornings of activities.

Spring 2020 Animal Brigade Sessions will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the following dates:

  • February 29
  • March 7
  • No Animal Brigade Service Club meeting will be held on March 14.
  • March 21
  • March 28
  • April 4
  • April 11

Topics and activities for Animal Brigade sessions vary depending on the needs of the Richmond SPCA and the animals in our care. Projects might include: socializing and bathing dogs, making cat toys, collecting wish list items for the animals, learning about issues facing homeless animals, assist in activities for Dog Jog 18, passing out treats to dogs and cats in our care, folding laundry and learning about pet behavior and reward-based training.

Payment of Animal Brigade Service Club dues of $70 per six-week session can be made by cash or check at the first meeting of the semester. Checks should be made out to Richmond SPCA. Please do not send payment with your application.
