Volunteer

Volunteer time and talents are a huge asset to the Fort Worth Animal Shelter.

There are many ways you can make a difference for the welfare of animals at both the Chuck Silcox Animal Care & Control Center and PetSmart Charities Adoption Centers. Volunteers can play with the pets and help them socialize; groom pets; photograph pets; interact with the pets in the Medical Treatment Ward; assist with adoptions and tours of the shelter; or assist with data entry/office work.

Businesses, organizations and youth groups also are welcome for a day of service.
