Want to devote your time to helping homeless animals in need? Volunteer at the MSPCA! The MSPCA cares for thousands of animals every year, including cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters, birds, and more! We rely on our volunteers to help us with everything from cleaning to fundraising events and everything in between.
Volunteers are an integral part of the MSPCA team and are critical to the success of our mission. Through their unique talents, skill, knowledge and care, volunteers improve the lives of the animals we touch through our programs and in our communities. The staff offers a well-structured volunteer experience with an orientation, mentorship sessions, and subsequent specialized trainings. We provide an inclusive and integrated culture of support, treating each other with kindness and care. Together, staff and volunteers act as positive role models, demonstrating the organizational values of Excellence, Collaboration, Positivity, Service, Integrity and Compassion as we strive to support animals in our community and the people that love them.
