Volunteering and Donations

We are always in need of volunteers. Tasks to be done include: walking dogs and cleaning their cages; feeding cats and cleaning their cages; socializing; outside maintenance of front and side yard (seasonal); fundraising. Volunteers can sign up at the shelter (see below).

Please remember you need to be committed. The animals and other volunteers depend on you showing up on your scheduled day and time — 365 days a year. This shelter is dependent on volunteers. Please note you need to be at least 18 years old or volunteering with a parent or guardian. Visit us and sign up. If you can’t make it at any time, call 781-631-8664 and leave a message.

We welcome donations in honor of a special occasion or in memory of a loved one. All donations are used for the care and feeding of our animals. You can donate easily and securely online by clicking here. A special commemorative card will be sent to acknowledge the donation, which will be listed in our newsletter and on this website. Donations of equipment and other useful items are also welcomed. Please see our wish list for items currently needed. You can also help by purchasing shelter merchandise.
