Get Involved!

The Spencer Group is always on the prowl for new volunteers and advocates! Here are some ways to support our work:

Share your time

  • Calling Social Butterflies! Volunteer at an upcoming special event! Contact us and tell us about your interests and we’ll be in touch with opportunities.
  • More of the creative type? We always need help behind the scenes making snuffle mats and cutting fleece.
  • Do you love to organize and work on the “business” side of things? Consider joining one of Spencer Group’s Committees. Committees have specific focus areas including Marketing/Public Relations, Special Events, and Training. Share your special skills and we’ll be in touch!
  • Are you a certified dog trainer who’s passionate about animal rescue? Certified trainers working through the Spencer Scholarship commit to using positive, science-based methods. Positive trainers will not use any tool or technique that is designed to be aversive and/or cause the dog intimidation, distrust, stress, anxiety, fear, or pain. If you would like to be considered for our training team, apply here.

Contribute items

Ever heard of a snuffle mat? It’s a great tool for canine enrichment and one of our biggest fundraising tools! We’re always looking for scraps of fleece (at least 1 3/4 x 9″) and rubber anti-fatigue mats. To donate tax-deductible items, please contact us to arrange a pick-up or drop-off.
