Volunteer Opportunities

Animal Services

We sincerely appreciate your consideration to volunteer at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center. We value our volunteers and their commitment of their personal time, talents and service. Volunteering is a wonderful way to give back to your community.


Our volunteers are amazingly generous with their time! In the last year volunteers gave 19,133 hours of time and $462,636 worth of cost savings. Volunteers are a key component of our team that makes it possible for library services to be delivered at high quality standards.

Police Services

The Senior Corps Of Retirees is comprised of a group of dedicated volunteer senior citizens working in conjunction with the Orange County Sheriff's Department, which handles the law enforcement services for the City. The volunteer program was developed and approved in 1989 by the Mission Viejo City Council. This volunteer group  performs a number of duties for the City, which allows the Sheriff's Deputies to devote the bulk of their activities to law enforcement.

Public Services

Students and residents wishing to complete community service hours for school or youth programs may contact the Public Services Departments for volunteer opportunities that benefit our community. Projects may include trash pick-up in our parks, trails and community centers, plant material installation, painting and event set-up.
