Countdown to Global Days of Service ’14: City of Boston Animal Shelter

City of Boston Animal Shelter


The City of Boston Animal Shelter, located in Roslindale, MA is the perfect volunteer opportunity for any animal lovers! The City of Boston Animal Control department runs the shelter, and their goal is to find these animals new homes. Thanks to websites like, new owners both in and out of state are adopting the animals. As a volunteer, students get to interact with animals, including socializing, bathing and exercising. The shelter also needs help with general tasks like cleaning and laundry. Many of the animals are strays or have been abandoned by their owners and just need a little love! The shelter has dogs, cats, and other small animals, so there is something for everyone.
