Volunteer Philosophy

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.

Volunteer Program

Our traditional Volunteer Program is for those looking for a long-term commitment and encompasses a wide variety of volunteer opportunities.  We are always in need of volunteers to provide hands-on care to the animals, ensuring that the shelter living environment remains safe, clean and as comfortable as possible. Additional opportunities include assisting with office tasks, helping in the retail area, data entry, as well as helping with special events. The opportunities are endless! You will be asked to select your animal preference the day of your orientation. Available options for this are Barn, Cat, Dog, and Small Animal.
