Volunteering

Can you lend a paw? There are plenty of volunteer opportunities! We would love your support.

Volunteers are an essential part of the Richland Hills Animal Services Center. Volunteers help support staff and assist with the care of the animals that come into the center. 

Volunteers can help in many ways:

  • Adoption assistance
  • Community outreach events
  • Facility cleaning
  • Fostering
  • Hygiene care
  • Kennel care
  • Laundry
  • Providing walks  
  • Socializing animals 
  • Vaccination clinic and more!

Getting started

Complete the volunteer application online or in person. Applicants under 16 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian when volunteering, and the accompanying parent or guardian must also complete an application. Applicants who pass a background check will be contacted by Animal Services staff.
