Main Line Animal Rescue will be accepting new volunteers (age 16 years and older) for several opportunities such as dog enrichment, cat enrichment, transport and front desk. Volunteers who are under the age of 18 (ages 16 or 17) must be accompanied by a parent or guardian each time they volunteer. The parent/guardian must also attend the orientation/training with them. We are unable to accept volunteers under the age of 16.

We have just relaunched our volunteer program, and anyone interested is encouraged to apply!

There’s more than one way to volunteer

We welcome volunteers to walk dogs, socialize cats and bunnies, or even to lend a hand at monthly property and fundraising events, among many other opportunities.

Court Mandated Volunteer Service

Persons interested in more details about our court-ordered volunteer program should contact the Volunteer Coordinator at Volunteer@MLAR.org. While you are fulfilling your court ordered hours, your service will include non-animal related projects: property care, laundry, stuffing Kong Toys, washing dishes etc. Once you have completed your court ordered hours, you will be able to be trained to work with the animals.
