Volunteers Help Save Lives!

With over 1,000+ homeless animals in our community, volunteers are a vital resource. MS Critterz encourages the participation of volunteers who support our mission to provide temporary shelter to stray, abandoned, and surrendered animals for the purpose of finding permanent suitable homes, by fostering, promoting adoptions, and transports to help eliminate unnecessary euthanasia, and the humane treatment of animals within the community.
