Volunteer Code of Ethics

  • READ CAREFULLY AS THIS CONTRACT IS BINDING. Volunteers are the lifeline of our organization. Whether you stuff envelopes, cuddle with cats, feed and water, clean the shelter, foster animals, work with feral animals or do any other tasks for MAARC you are making a positive contribution in the lives of animals. As a Volunteer representing MAARC and the Maryville City Shelter, your conduct and interaction with the staff, other volunteers and the public is expected to always be professional; and courteous. In volunteering you are making a commitment to both our staff and our animals to carry out, to the best of your abilities, the tasks you have pledged to perform. The Volunteer Code of Ethics clarifies the expectations and principles for MAARC volunteers. Should a Volunteer display unprofessional or disrespectful behavior or exhibit a lack of self-discipline, the volunteer will be asked to leave the premises. Such behavior could be grounds for termination of volunteer status.
