Yes! We're so happy you're interested in joining our team. Here is the most important thing you need to know about volunteering at MCR: you will help save lives. We believe in a community-centered approach to saving lives, and we need your help to make that happen.

Eligible volunteers* must:

  • be at least 16 years** of age,
  • complete and submit the online application,
  • pass a background check,
  • have an email address,
  • attend a brief training session before you get started,
  • and commit to one shift per week.

We have walking shifts, cleaning shifts, adoption shifts -- not to mention the countless other ways that people support our organization behind the scenes. If you're interested in off-site events, committee work, and foster opportunities, then we'll find a way for you to do what you love here.

Apply today!
