|MRFRS relies on our team of wonderful, committed volunteers to help both in the shelter and out in the community. Our volunteers help care for cats waiting to find their forever homes in our Salisbury adoption center, assist with special events, help with answering phones and administrative tasks, staff our Sunday feral spay/neuter clinics, feed feral cats at local feeding stations, as well as a variety of other responsibilities – they are there wherever extra help is needed!
We are always looking for new volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, the first step is to fill out a volunteer application. Once your application has been submitted, you will receive an invitation to our next upcoming orientation. Once you’ve completed an orientation session and decide what volunteer role you’d like to take on, you’ll be trained and then scheduled for a regular shift.
*Please note that not all volunteers are accepted, and that not all volunteers receive their first choice of roles.
