Volunteer Opportunities for the 2017-2018 season:

The SPAYHA website contains a tab called DIBS where SPAYHA members can view available openings and claim service hours throughout the 2017-2018 season. When claiming DIBS, SPAYHA members should note only one person per DIBS session. SPAYHA member volunteers will only be credited for the number of hour’s documented per DIBS session. 

Please Note: Service hours credits that have been completed/earned are not allowed to be transferred from one SPAYHA member to another. Each SPAYHA member is required to complete their own service hour requirements.
