We strive to improve the lives of companion animals by rehoming abused, abandoned, and neglected pets while fighting for their well-being through vigorous legislative efforts, humane education, and by offering affordable veterinary care for all.
Volunteers can also participate in an onsite volunteer opportunity at the SPCA Thrift Store (1589 Whiskey Road, Aiken, SC) where participants will help sort donations, clean areas of the store, organize sale items on the merchandise floor, and provide basic customer service to store shoppers.
