Adopt

The homeless animals in our shelters are waiting patiently and hoping for that moment when someone will look into their eyes and see how special they are.  Become a hero by rescuing a pet and creating space for more animals to be saved.

ADOPT A BEST FRIEND

Volunteer

We have more than 500 volunteers that help with animal care, admin, fostering, fundraising, TNR, and supporting our thrift stores. Come see for yourself how rewarding it is and why we’ve been voted as “Best Place to Volunteer” for 7 years in a row!

DONATE YOUR TIME

Foster

Foster families provide socialization and love to pets who are young or need to recover from illnesses or injuries.  When you temporarily open up your heart and home to a foster pet, we will provide all the supplies and training you need.

OPEN YOUR HOME

Support Second Chances

The Colchester SPCA proudly follows no-kill principles and does not receive any government funding for their shelter.

Some pets need one-on-one support to overcome abuse and neglect. Others need emergency medical treatment to survive.

Your support saves lives. Please donate to help local pets at the Colchester SPCA today.

History

The Colchester SPCA was formed in 1986. In May of 2002, we were finally able to open the doors of the shelter, after many years of fundraising.

 

Wish List

We go through many supplies to show homeless pets the love and care they deserve. Check out our wish list here for the items we are most often in need of.
