Our volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization and the key ingredient to the success of our shelter. We are always looking for good, dedicated, adult volunteers. You must be 16 to work with cats, and 18 to work with dogs. There is always cleaning, feeding and nurturing for the animals to be done. We work 7 days a week – 365 days a year.

Caring for these otherwise forgotten animals is a very rewarding and gratifying feeling. Volunteers are also needed to assist on areas that do not require direct contact with any animals, i.e, washing dishes, doing laundry or following up on paper work. Please feel free to contact us directly for more information on joining the WMASS volunteer team.
