Volunteering with MACC

MACC works with individuals and organizations across Nashville to help domestic animals find caring homes, decrease over-population of cats and dogs through spaying and neutering, support widespread rabies vaccinations, and promote responsible pet ownership.

MACC is much more than just an animal shelter. It’s a place where dedicated professionals and volunteers share their commitment, their passion and their talent to help the animals and people of Nashville-Davidson County.

MACC has many opportunities in which volunteers can participate; enrichment, engagement training, play groups, grooming, clerical help, assisting with special projects and clinics, advocating for spay/neuter, assisting with humane education and adoptions.

MACC accepts volunteers of all ages (12 and under have special enrichment projects to work on from home). MACC requires that all volunteers complete orientation, training and a background check before becoming part of the program.

MACC does not currently accept applications for court-ordered service hours.
