Volunteer and help save a homeless pet
Milo Point Richmond Adoption Center
The animals need you! Volunteers provide daily animal care, dog walking, cat socialization, and adoption support. Opportunities include weekly, daily, and on-call shifts at the shelter.
Milo Point Richmond opened on December 8, 2013. This is our forever location in a great 5,000 square feet space. We have dog yards, our own Dog Park, and the quaint town of Point Richmond is a short walk away. Cat volunteers may begin at 12 years of age, and must train and volunteer with a parent or guardian. Dog volunteers may begin at 16 years of age, and if under 18 must have signed parental permission to volunteer.
If you are ready to make a commitment to help Milo’s adoptable pets find their forever homes, complete our online volunteer application today! We will follow-up to provide more information on next steps.
Milo volunteers can find the online schedule here.
Mobile Adoptions and Outreach
Every weekend there are mobile adoption events, mostly at various locations in Marin and in the East Bay. We always need volunteers to help with set-up, taking care of the critters during the events, and breaking down at the end of the day.
Mobiles are held regularly at Corte Madera Town Center, Terrapin Crossroads and various Petfood Express Locations around the Bay Area. We also attend many Pet Fairs in the Summer months.
If you are ready to make a commitment to help Milo animals find their forever homes, complete our online Volunteer Application (link TBD) today! We will follow-up within 7 days to provide more information on next steps.
DUE TO COVID-19, MOBILE ADOPTIONS ARE POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Volunteer at the Sanctuary
We have regular volunteer weekends in the summer and other events at our Milo Sanctuary.
Please be ready to roll up your sleeves and pitch in. You will likely get hot, you will most likely get dirty, and you will get lots of dog kisses and cat purrs. We have projects galore to benefit the dogs, cats, hoofed animals and other critters.
We have building projects galore. We would love help by any handy persons. Trades people are encouraged.
We have a volunteer cabin being completed, so come stay with us!.There are lots of things to help with and fun to be had.
The Sanctuary is located about three hours north of the Bay Area, east of Willits. The spring and fall are beautiful times of the year to visit – and help. Summers are typically hot, and there are vital projects that occur in these months.
Please send a request to the Sanctuary staff or more information.
