MCACC has many dogs that have been at the shelter for one month or longer. These dogs need time out of their kennels to exercise and enjoy life away from the shelter environment. If you are able to commit to spending a morning, afternoon, or entire day with a shelter dog, then consider becoming a MCACC Day Foster volunteer. To become a Day Foster, simply complete and submit this Online Volunteer Application. Make sure you note that you'd like to become a Day Foster volunteer.

For a list of upcoming volunteer orientation sessions, please visit our calendar of events.
