On-Site Care

Volunteer On Site At OTR

Do you love animals?

Come on over to our Wellesley shelter! Help to clean cages, feed, water and play with (socialize) kittens and young cats at OTR/MA. In addition to direct care, we need photographers, social media coordinators, and people who will help with phone calls and paperwork. If you are interested in volunteering on-site, please fill out this form.
We will call to arrange an orientation for you. We will also have a staff person here for your first few shifts. Most volunteers come in for one to two shifts a week.
For minors ages 15 and over , with a signed parental form, you can be here on your own. If you are under 15, you can come with an adult.

Are you pre-vet?

Are you interested in becoming a veterinarian? We welcome pre-veterinary college students to learn about shelter medicine here. Our vet is on site, and you will have an opportunity to shadow her.

Do you need High School and College Community Service Hours?

We love working with high school and college age helpers and welcome teens looking for community service hours. Do a shift or two per week here at OTR/MA, a fundraiser at your school or make us some fleece blankets for our cats. We welcome your ideas and want to hear from you!
