***PCAS Does Not Offer Volunteer Hours for Court Ordered Community Service***

Do you enjoy a Hands-On experience? Have you ever been called a "People Person"? Are you an animal lover? Then this role may be for you!

Our Animal Shelter is looking to add volunteers to an exciting role called Animal Control Assistant. These individuals will ride alongside our trained Animal Control Officers and assist in helping make our community a better place. Tasks include but aren't limited to:

  • Report Writing
  • Animal Handling using approved safety techniques & equipment in the field
  • Educating citizens on County Ordinances & Responsible Pet Ownership Measures
  • Transporting Animals using County Vehicles
  • Testifying as a county witness as needed for any cases that go to trial
  • Cleaning, organizing and re-stocking ACO vehicles as needed
  • Feeding, bathing, handling animals during intake at the shelter
  • Communicating effectively with team members ranging from shelter staff, to veterinary techs to leadership

Ride Alongs will start/end for the most part at the shelter located in Land O' Lakes, but some offsite meeting spots may also be established based on location needs such as county libraries. We are the County Animal Services department for Pasco County so we only service within Pasco County boundaries.

If this is something you're interested in and have the availability for weekday work doing, please visit our website and complete an application today!
