Northeast Animal Shelter Community Outreach Volunteer – Data Entry

Community Outreach – Data Entry Volunteer

At the core of our Community Outreach programs is the belief that people and pets belong together. While our adoption programs work to bring people and pets together, our Community Outreach programs work to keep people and pets together. We strive to achieve this goal by offering affordable and accessible animal care resources to pet owners and caretakers in underserved communities.

The MSPCA at Northeast Animal Shelter is seeking volunteers who are outgoing, friendly and love to meet new people, listen and problem solve. Our community engagement volunteers’ primary role will be to join outreach staff in going door-to-door or assisting in a Mobile Pantry/Pop-Up in specific neighborhoods to share information about our program and provide needed resources. Number of hours per week will range from 5-30 hours depending on weather and events.


Program Description:

Our Community Outreach team utilizes a website designed by the Human Society of the United States to better serve our clients. Volunteers will assist with entering new clients into the database, updating their information, and entering the number of meals provided through our Pet Food Bank into our spreadsheet. With the right candidate, this position can be remote!



  • Learn web based programs such as Cognito, Acuity and Pets For Life software.
  • Follow instructions from the Community Outreach Manager.
  • Sort/organize files containing pet food and client information to digitize into a database.
  • Available 2-5 hours per week with the ability to work remote.

  • Ability to work independently and communicate with CO manager and other volunteers.
  • Able to work both independently and as part of a team.
  • Ability to be judgment-free in challenging situations.
  • Ability to multitask, prioritize, and use good judgment in a fast paced, high stress environment.
  • The ability to use basic math, including fractions.


For this role, volunteers must have a valid driver’s license and their own personal vehicle. Volunteers will be subjected to a CORI and background check if driving MSPCA vehicles.
