***PCAS Does Not offer Volunteer Hours for Court Ordered Community Service***
Do you enjoy being outside? Want a great way to get your steps in? Come walk our dogs!!!
Here's a brief overview of our Dog Walker Opportunity:
- Shifts are typically 2-3 hours each, allowing for flexibility - especially during our hot summer months!
- We strive to get all shelter dogs out at least twice a day for a walk or time in our play yards.
- Volunteers work alongside our animal care technicians, and use tools like a white board so we can reach our daily goal of getting dogs out of their kennels.
- Volunteers make their own schedules using an easy online system.
- You can make new friends, learn animal handling techniques and get some exercise!
Why is this important? Why spend your time with us?
Animals typically come into our care through no fault of their own. We want them to feel loved and comforted during their stay at our shelter. That's where YOU come in! There's fewer happier moments than seeing a dog learn to trust again, or teaching them a cool trick! This is all part of what a dog walker brings to our shelter. Want to make a difference in your community? Join our Pasco Pack!

Our mission is to ensure the health and safety of the people and pets in our community by encouraging responsible pet ownership through education, legislation and by providing incentives to sterilize pets.
Our goal is to save 90% of the adoptable animals that come into the shelter. We strive to create community outreach and partnerships to educate Pasco County residents on responsible pet ownership. Our volunteers are an integral part of creating a loving and supportive environment for all shelter pets while they wait to find their forever homes.
