According to the Dallas Companion Animal Project , more than 23,000 dogs and cats were euthanized in our community during the last fiscal year because there were not enough homes.
What is involved?
Volunteers conduct community outreach and volunteer at spay/neuter and vaccine clinics. The community outreach is aimed to promote upcoming clinics and educate people about the importance of vaccines and pet sterilization. Volunteers should be comfortable handing out flyers in public locations such as shopping centers or canvassing neighborhoods door-to-door to hand out information.
Most volunteer opportunities are during the day on weekends.
Most volunteer events are held in East Dallas or near West Dallas (Oak Cliff).
What is the time commitment?
We ask that you commit to volunteering for a minimum of 3-6 months. This is so you can develop relationships in the communities where the clinics are offered. Attending at least 2 volunteer events per month would be ideal.
How do I learn what to do?
We hold regular training sessions. Once you sign up to volunteer, you will hear about training opportunities as they are offered. The experts at Spay Neuter Network conduct our volunteer training programs.
We need Spanish speakers! Please considering joining our volunteer team.
This program is a partnership program with the Spay Neuter Network .
