Volunteer with us!
Volunteering your time is one of the best ways to help animals. Whether you walk the dogs at the shelter or help with a fundraising event, you can make a difference in the lives of shelter animals. When you give the animals the gift of your time, you'll get back as much as you give -- maybe even more. Check out some of the opportunities we have available!
Shelter Chores Volunteer
The shelter chores volunteer assist animal care staff with various tasks that may include cleaning living areas of the animals, laundry, and possibly organizing materials necessary for animal care.
TLC volunteers assist staff in meeting the physical, mental, and social needs of all the animals here at MHF. All TLC volunteers attend an orientation and basic training.
Our foster volunteers bring our adoptable animals into home environments and socialize the animals. They also assess an animal's personality and behavior in a home (which can differ greatly from what the animal exhibits in the shelter) and help advertise their foster pet on social media.
Meet and Greet Volunteer
These volunteers help represent MHF at community events and introduce the adoptable animals to the public.
Front Desk Volunteer
Get a front row seat to all the shelter happenings! These volunteers answer the phone, greet visitors and more.
* Please Be Advised *
Wait times on volunteer orientation may be extended as we have a new volunteer manager joining the team. The start date of this employee will be February 14 2023. We appreciate your patience.
