How to Become an MCACC Volunteer
Thank you for considering volunteering to support Maricopa County’s shelter pets! We are currently recruiting volunteers, including those who wish to foster animals, to support both our East and West Shelters. See the Opportunity Directory for more details on each of our unique programs. As a volunteer, you will be helping us achieve our mission by assisting pets in need and serving our community. There are so many opportunities to make a difference.
Please watch this short video to see the expectations and realities of volunteering at our shelters and then review the volunteer handbook to get a better understanding of what we’re all about!
After viewing the video and handbook, to become part of the team, please complete the volunteer application here. Once we receive and approve your application, we will reach out to you to set up your orientation! We host two orientations a month, one on a weekday and one on a Saturday, to accommodate your schedule.
