Animal Brigade Service Club Fall 2023

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. This club is held twice a year with fall and spring sessions.

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

Fall 2023 Animal Brigade Sessions will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Saturday, October 7
  • Saturday, October 14
  • Saturday, October 21
  • Saturday, October 28

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.

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.
