We are looking for volunteers to help our Livestock team in McKinney.

We are looking for people with experience with horses, pigs, chickens, and other livestock. Help is needed with feeding, bathing, barn/paddock cleaning and general care.

We are also looking for volunteers who can help train horses. Daisy Erdmann our staff trainer will work with you to learn the ropes. This includes enrichment activities like feeding, petting, and giving treats to help the horse become more friendly with people as well as riding and ground work. To work in this area you must have some experience with horse and be at least 16 years old.

Special bonus if you can drive a truck and trailer to help transport horses to partner facilities.

About SPCA of Texas

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.
