The SPCA of Texas is seeking dedicated volunteers to provide love and attention to our furry friends throughout the week (Monday-Friday). With over 200 animals in our care at any given time, we need volunteers to assist with caring for dogs awaiting adoption, including socializing, walking, playing, reinforcing basic commands, brushing, feeding, and cleaning up as needed.

We offer flexible shifts every day of the week, from 9 am to 6 pm. Volunteers aged 10 and above are welcome to participate. For those under 15, volunteering alongside a parent or guardian aged 18 or older is required.

For younger volunteers, aged 10 to 11, opportunities primarily focus on cat handling after training, while those aged 12 and older can handle both dogs and cats.

To begin volunteering, you'll need to create a volunteer account and complete a few initial steps. There is a $15 volunteer fee per person to cover the initial costs of onboarding new volunteers. Once these steps are completed, you'll be eligible to sign up for an Orientation session, where you'll receive further training and information.

About SPCA of Texas

Location:

2400 Lone Star Dr., Dallas, TX 75212, US

Mission Statement

The SPCA of Texas is dedicated to providing every animal exceptional care and a loving home.

Description

The SPCA of Texas is the leading animal welfare agency in North Texas. We operate two animal shelters, located near downtown Dallas and in McKinney, which, together with our community partners for offsite adoptions, find homes for more than 6,000 animals each year. We do not euthanize animals for lack of space and we do not place time limits on animals housed in our shelters. We also operate public veterinary clinics in West Dallas, South Oak Cliff and McKinney to provide high-quality pet care at affordable prices and we collaborate with community partners to spay or neuter tens of thousands of animals each year.

In a typical year, our five-member Rescue and Investigations team responds to 2,000 calls and rescues more than 1,000 abandoned or cruelly treated animals in 8 North Texas counties. Our education and outreach programs reach more than 20,000 Texans each year with a message of compassion and responsibility.

Our independent non-profit organization is not affiliated with the ASPCA or any other humane society and we do not receive taxpayer funding. Your support helps us make life better for more than 50,000 animals and the people who love them - right here in our community.
