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 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.
