Interested in volunteering at MHS?

Volunteers help our staff care for the shelter and the animals.  We have levels of volunteering that allow you to grow in experience and earn more responsible tasks.  We can also use volunteers to help with events and sometimes for office tasks.

Volunteers must be at least 13 years old.  If you are between 13-15, a parent must be at the shelter with you while you volunteer.  Parents must sign a waiver for their children (available at MHS).

Please fill out the online application.  Once approved we will contact you for orientation.  All volunteers must complete orientation before working at the shelter.
