Are you a reliable, self-motivated individual who loves animals? Do you have extra time you would like to regularly spend helping homeless pets? Then volunteering at Minneapolis Animal Care & Control may be a great fit for you!
MACC utilizes volunteers to help walk our dogs, cuddle our cats, photograph animals, be Adoption Counselors, as well as foster animals. We ask individuals to commit to volunteer four (4) hours per month for a minimum of six (6) months. Individuals 16 years of age or older are allowed to volunteer with the signed authorization of a parent/guardian.
A $20 application fee will be collected at the time of a Volunteer Orientation Session to cover the entire cost associated with the background screening.
Due to the upcoming holiday season we will not be holding a New Volunteer Orientation until after the New Year. Thank you!
For additional information about volunteering please email Danielle Joerger, Volunteer Coordinator, at [email protected]. You can also submit an online application (below) and you will be contacted when the next orientation is scheduled if your availability and position interests align with current program needs. Thank You!
The volunteer screening process includes the following:
1. Submit an application ($20 application fee will be due at time of orientation)
2. Attend a Volunteer Orientation Session (approx. 2 hours)
3. Attend class(es) specific to volunteer position (approx. 1.5-2 hours each)
4. Hands-on training with a current volunteer (1-4 hours)
5. Obtain a volunteer ID badge
