Volunteer Opportunities - Springfield Adoption Center

171 Union Street, Springfield, MA 01105

We have fewer animals in our adoption centers in the winter - it's all hands on deck during the very busy summer and fall seasons! We will be starting new volunteers for direct animal care roles in the late spring. If direct animal care (walking, cleaning/feeding, working with the animals) is what you want to do, please check back late April 2019. Other types of volunteer opportunities may become available sooner, check back here to see!
