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 four Saturday mornings of activities.

Fall 2022 Animal Brigade Sessions will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Saturday, September 24
  • Saturday, October 1
  • Saturday, October 8
  • Saturday, October 15

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, passing out treats to dogs and cats in our care, folding laundry and learning about pet behavior and reward-based training.

Please read our COVID-19 policies and procedures for Animal Brigade.

Due to overwhelming demand those admitted to Animal Brigade Service Club will be contacted on September 12, 2022.

Payment of Animal Brigade Service Club dues of $80 per four-week session can be made by cash or check at the first meeting of the semester, or by credit card online. Checks should be made out to Richmond SPCA. Please do not send payment with your application.
