The SPCA of Texas is recruiting Mobile Event and In-Shelter Volunteers. Your very first shift will be an animal handling training at our Jan Rees-Jones location in Dallas (2400 Lone Star Dr., Dallas, TX 75212). While attending this training, we will let you know where we need the most help and where we feel you would be the best fit - either in the shelter or at mobile adoptions.
Mobile event volunteers help with animal handling, merchandise sales, and adoption counseling (additional training is needed for adoption counseling). Volunteer days and times will vary based on the event, but are typically on the weekends.
In-shelter volunteers will help with behind the scenes tasks such as dishes, laundry, pet enrichment, and walking dogs. Available volunteer shifts are 7 days a week from 12-3pm (will vary dependent upon need). In-shelter volunteers are required to have a set reoccurring weekly schedule.
About SPCA of Texas
2400 Lone Star Dr., Dallas, TX 75212, US
The SPCA of Texas is dedicated to providing every animal exceptional care and a loving home.
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.
