Mission Statement

Animal Care Services’ mission is to encourage responsible pet ownership by promoting and protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the residents and pets of San Antonio through education, enforcement, and community partnership.


Volunteers are needed to assist the shelter in our advocacy efforts and general operations. As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to help us sustain our mission in several different areas, including: Education & Outreach Support, Community Resource Support, Campus Operations Support and Animal Placement Support. Whether you are interested in walking dogs, socializing with puppies, playing with cats or working with people to educate the community about the resources we provide to encourage healthy and responsible pet ownership, we have a volunteer position for you!

How to become a volunteer with ACS:
1. Complete an ACS Volunteer Application at the following link: bit/ly/ACSVOLUNTEER
2. Attend an ACS General Volunteer Orientation (will be emailed more information including orientation dates after submitting volunteer application)
3. Pass a background check (typically processed and cleared 1-2 weeks after orientation)

We are hoping to work with you soon! Please contact acsvolunteer@sanantonio.gov for more information.
