Make MSRPAC a safe and happy place for pets in transition and its volunteers, staff, and visitors

 

Want to do good in your community and get a regular four-legged friend fix?  Become a volunteer at the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center!  

When you volunteer at the pet adoption center, you're joining an amazing team of volunteers and staff who are committed to providing support in many different ways to orphaned pets in our community.  As a volunteer, you will be rewarded for your efforts through recognition events during National Volunteer Week and the best of all, you'll be helping pets in need receive the second chance they so deserve.

  • Provide administrative support in many of our departments including development, volunteer, spay/neuter clinic, behavior and more
