Off-Site Volunteering Opportunities

We showcase many of our cats at Petsense and Petsmart of Oxford/The Villages. Our Volunteers come in, based on their assigned shift, to care/feed/play with the adoptable cats and answer any questions from interested adopters. These locations have enabled us to greatly increase our feline adoptions and also get the public acquainted with our organization.  Additionally, each store has adoption events throughout the year where we bring our adoptable dogs.  If you’re interested in volunteering in these ways, contact Jane Mouradjian at Volunteering@hsspca.org.

PetSmart, Oxford/The Villages, 3667 Wedgewood Lane (behind Fresh Market on CR466)

  • We have been at this location since it opened in April, 2018.  We cover 2 shifts, noon and afternoon/PM, per day here.  We are generally here on Saturdays from 11-2:30 to do on-site adoptions.
