Volunteering with Dogs 

Volunteers are the lifeline to the dogs at MLAR. With their commitment to walking, training, snuggling, grooming and enrichment, the dogs at MLAR enjoy opportunities that many have never experienced.

“What impressed you most about MLAR was the deep care and love given to the animals, the way the staff knows each animal’s personality, all the work they put into severely abused animals (medically and psychologically) so that they are healthy and have an easier transition to family life.” — — — Allison K
