How Can I Volunteer?

There are lots of ways to volunteer your time to help homeless dogs and cats find a loving home.  Whether you can volunteer every week, every month, or every once in a while, we have a variety of roles where you can fit in. Let’s get you started today!


Individual Volunteers

As an individual volunteer, you’ll have the opportunity to help in many capacities. Once you have completed our Volunteer Orientation & Dog Handling Class, you’ll be able to begin signing up for various volunteer shifts. Volunteers must be 16 years of age. Volunteers 12-15 years old can come with a registered volunteer 21+. Unfortunately, we can not allow volunteers younger than 12.

Volunteering is a great way to help socialize our adoptable animals, learn about animal wellness, and take a burden off of the staff by assisting with day-to-day care. We could not do as much as we do without our valued volunteers.

Group Volunteers

We allow group volunteers of up to 20 people per group schedule a time to come out and volunteer. All participants must be at least 16 years of age. Projects that involve landscaping, organizing, and maintenance are great examples of what group volunteers can accomplish.

For any groups under the age of 16, like Scout troops and elementary groups, they can better serve us by doing group projects at home, like making blankets and toys, or hosting a donation drive and then scheduling a time to drop them off.

Court Mandated Service

Our Court Mandated Community Service Program is completely separate from our regular volunteer program. Volunteers needing to complete this type of community service must be at least 18 years of age.  To get registered to do your court-ordered community service here at Texas Humane Heroes, email to get started.

Once the court-ordered community service hours are complete, you may follow the steps to become a volunteer through our regular volunteer program.
