Little Bookworms Volunteer

The MSPCA offers many opportunities for children and teens to learn about what we do and to contribute to our mission. While in person programs are on pause until 2021 due to Covid-19, we are offering virtual programs and need volunteers to help us do that!

  • Little Bookworms Story Hour
    Volunteers record videos of themselves reading an animal themed story targeted towards children under 5 years of age. Volunteers can also introduce any personal pets and/or sing an animal themed song. Volunteers submit videos for approval and editing at any time and videos are posted to the humane education Facebook page and Youtube channel. You can make as many videos as you like!
  • Caring Kids Club
    This program is for 6-10 year olds to learn more about animals in a fun and interactive way. Volunteers are needed to contribute video content for this program. Ideas include introducing personal pets and discussing their care, doing an animal themed craft or activity; any idea can be considered. Volunteers submit their idea in advance for initial approval and then submit the video for final approval and editing. Videos are posted to the humane education Facebook page and Youtube channel. You can make as many videos as you like!

If you have a ready smile and a positive attitude we would love your help with any of these programs!

Mission Statement

The Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals believes that all animals possess intrinsic value, independent of their relationships to or use by human beings. Furthermore, the MSPCA recognizes that the lives of all creaturesà ¢à  à  human and non-humanà ¢à  à  are inextricably intertwined; that our actions impact them and our fate is linked to theirs as interdependent inhabitants of the same planet. It is for these reasons that the MSPCA is dedicated to the protection of animals and the advancement of their welfare, and believes that these objectives represent legitimate and important areas for societyà ¢à  à  s ethical and legal concern. The MSPCA further recognizes that the fate of animals within our society is dependent upon the willingness of human beings to acknowledge the significance of their fellow creatures and to accept responsibility for their well-being. Consequently, the MSPCA also commits itself to the conduct of programs and activities designed to create an enlightened and compassionate citizenry that is actively concerned about protection of animals and the environment we all share.


Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a non-profit organization which protects animals, relieves their suffering, advances their health and welfare, prevents cruelty, and works for a just and compassionate society.
