Cat Care Program
MARL’s Cat Room and Cage-Free Cat Room are maintained primarily by volunteers! We need help cleaning each of these rooms in the morning before our shelter opens to the public. General duties include cleaning, doing dishes, scooping litter boxes, and providing the cats with food, clean water and clean bedding. In addition to cleaning, we are also in need of volunteers to help socialize our cats and kittens throughout the day.
Dog Care Program
The Dog Care Program at MARL gives you the opportunity to form relationships with our dogs while providing them with enrichment and socialization. This program is available to volunteers who complete basic training. Dog walkers must be 21 years old and be able to make at least a three-month commitment of one day per week.
Offsite Cat Adoption Centers
PetSmart in Northville houses a number of adoptable MARL cats in their adoption center. PetSmart volunteers work as a team to ensure that our cats have a clean place to live and plenty of socialization!
