Volunteer Application

  • Age Policy - You must be at least 15 years of age to volunteer and we ask for a 6-month commitment from our regular volunteers. Most regular volunteers will average one day a week, from 2-4 hours a day, on a designated day and time slot scheduled by the volunteer coordinator. Please note that all volunteers will need to sign a release form; volunteers under 18 years of age will need to have a parent or legal guardian sign.
    Please note that community service volunteers are accepted on a case-by-case basis.
    Please note that regular cat care volunteer hours are from about 8:30am to 10:00/11:00am, and from 3:30 to 5:00/5:15pm each day.
    Please note that reliable transportation to and from the shelter is required for shelter cat care volunteers.


  • After completing this application, you will receive an invitation to our next orientation session, where you will learn more about the MRFRS and the volunteer opportunities that are available to you. Once you attend an orientation session, the volunteer coordinator will set up training specific to the area you are interested in volunteering in and will schedule your volunteer shifts.

    The MRFRS reserves the right to determine what volunteer opportunities will be offered to applicants. Not all applicants will be accepted, and not all applicants will receive their first choice of assignment. All decisions are final.

    Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the MRFRS!
