When you volunteer at the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center Thrift Store, you know that your time will make a difference, supporting our mission to provide care to orphaned pets in the community. The more volunteers MSRPAC Thrift Store has, the more dogs, cats, puppies and kittens it can help. Think about it: one hour of volunteering at MSRPAC equals one vaccine for a puppy, one meal for a dog or one day of shelter for a homeless pet. Also, volunteering at MSRPAC Thrift Store will help you build valuable skills. Volunteer when you can: volunteer shifts are flexible and available each day of the week. Whether it’s sorting in the back room or helping on the sales floor, we have a job for you!

The Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center strives to eliminate the suffering of homeless dogs and cats by providing humane care for pets in transition, facilitating adoptions to good homes, supporting pet overpopulation education and supporting sterilization of companion animals.
As a limited-entry companion adoption center, the Pet Adoption Center takes in healthy, adoptable cats and dogs from owners who can no longer care for them. As space allows, we also select healthy, adoptable cats and dogs from other local animal welfare agencies. Pets that are accepted into our center must pass health and behavior evaluations. All animals stay in our care until a good, loving home is found. No healthy, adoptable animal is ever destroyed. If space is not available to admit a pet, or if the pet cannot be accepted due to any other reason, owners are referred to other facilities and organizations.
All pets while in our care receive food, a comfortable environment, medical attention and loving socialization from both staff and volunteers. Our staff and volunteers monitor the physical, emotional and mental health of the animals daily. A progressive "stress reduction" program helps keep our residents healthy, happy and adoptable. All animals are vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed or neutered. For animals that are too young to be adopted, volunteers offer temporary homes through our pet foster care program.
