Nevins Farm Volunteer Program (Methuen)

Minimum age to volunteer is 16. Please visit Humane Education to view options for those 15 and under.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at our Methuen location! Volunteer roles require daily access to email and the internet. Most require a weekly on-property commitment in Methuen, Massachusetts, for a consistent day and time.

Questions about volunteering? Read our Frequently Asked Questions! The procedure to request court-ordered community service is covered in our FAQ.

Summer Volunteer Information:

We have one summer-only role open to high school and college students, as well as those on a gap year after high school! This intensive volunteer internship commitment is aimed at mature students considering a career with animals. We presently have only weekend spots left. Applications will close 6/17/24. Apply today!

Other roles appropriate for summer/shorter term commitments are Adoption Center Greeter and Hillside Cemetery Gardening. These are less of an intense commitment than the volunteer internship.

Aside from for the above-mentioned roles, we cannot accept applications from individuals who will leave or need a schedule change when the school year begins.

Volunteer Roles Accepting Applications:

Please click on the roles for detailed descriptions and application links. Applications must be submitted through the website. We update openings as our needs change.

Looking for group opportunities? Availability of on-property tasks for groups is limited. School groups and civic organizations are instead encouraged to hold a supply drive at their location benefiting our Community Outreach pet food pantry. These are hugely helpful! Our most common needs are wet and dry cat food, wet and dry dog food, dog and cat toys, and cat litter. If your corporate group is interested in a one day on-property group volunteer opportunity for 15 people or less, in exchange for a monetary donation to MSPCA-Angell, please visit our Corporate Volunteer Program page for more information.

MSPCA-Angell Volunteer Philosophy

Volunteers are an integral pillar of the MSPCA team and are critical to the success of our mission to protect animals, relieve their suffering, advance their health and welfare, prevent cruelty, and work for a just and compassionate society.  Through their unique talents, knowledge, and care volunteers improve the lives of the animals we encounter through our programs and in our communities. Together, staff and volunteers act as positive role models as we strive to provide an integrated culture of kindness and support for the animals in our community and the people that love them.
