Personal Pet Visitations to Senior Living Facilities
Central California SPCA
We are looking for volunteers who own dogs that already have the "Canine Good Citizen Certification" to assist us with visitations to senior living facilities and other organizations that request pet visits. Certifications must be current and the dog must be fixed and up to date on all vaccines.
Owners/animal handlers and their dogs will go through an orientation with the CCSPCA and possibly additional orientations with partner organizations that will be visited. Some organizations may also require certain vaccines/TB tests for the owners/animal handlers plus background checks. Fees for any requirements will be covered by the volunteers.
Visitations will be scheduled and overseen by the CCSPCA as they are requested. Dates and times will vary.
Please note that certain breeds may be excluded from participating for liability reasons.
About Central California SPCA
103 S HUGHES AVE, FRESNO, CA 93706, US
Our mission is to provide protection, placement, and education to ensure responsible animal care .
As the leading animal welfare organization in California’s Central Valley, we are committed to leading and serving our community of animals and people by providing programs and services which serve all the stages of an animal’s life. These programs include Adoptions, Rescue, Foster Care, Owner Surrenders, Outreach, Humane Education, Veterinary Services, Spay/Neuter programs, and Pet Services.
The CCSPCA also assumes responsibility, by contract, to perform the Animal Control and Leash Law services for the City of Fresno dating back to September 1951.
The modern facilities and our caring staff offer safe refuge, nourishment, medical care, and love to every animal in our Animal Center. Free ambulance service and shelter is provided for lost or stray animals in the City of Fresno, or those owned but temporarily without homes because their owners can no longer keep them.
Although the CCSPCA is contracted to conduct Animal Control Services and Rabies Control Enforcement within Fresno City, we are not federally, state, or locally funded and do not receive aid from any national organization (including the ASPCA). The CCSPCA owns its own land, buildings, and equipment purchased with privately donated funds. Our funds come from our loyal supporters, allowing us to provide many vital services to our community.
