Want to help the animals at the shelter? We need people to join our team of volunteers who walk dogs, bathe dogs and socialize puppies. If you are a cat lover, our kitties need some TLC too! Please call (648-6863) or vist the shelter to sign up for volunteer work, we can't take care of the animals without you! (All new volunteers will need to complete a volunteer orientation before being able to volunteer at the shelter.)
We need Foster Parents! Foster homes provide temporary care for kittens or puppies that are not old enough for adoption. As well, adult dogs or cats are sometimes placed in foster care to recover from an illness or to overcome shyness. In all cases, foster parents provide love and shelter so that the animals in their care can go on to become beloved pets in an adoptive home. Please call the shelter if you have space, time and love to give to the homeless pets in our care.
Who We Are
Established in 1935, the S.P.C.A. Albrecht Center for Animal Welfare is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that currently operates an animal shelter located at 401 Wire Road. We provide shelter and care for stray, rejected and abused cats and dogs until they are placed in permanent, loving homes. We offer on-site no-cost and low-cost spay and neuter programs, education programs, and pet therapy programs.
The shelter is open to the public at these times:
Monday-Saturday: 11:00 am to 5:00 pm
We have puppies and dogs available for adoption at Petsmart on Whiskey Road in Aiken (near Target) Saturday from 11am to 3:00 pm. Meet your next best friend at Petsmart this weekend. (Call shelter for a schedule)
