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.
Teens, ages 13-15, participating in Camp Henry will have the opportunity to learn what Fort Worth Animal Care & Control does to care for animals in our community. From shelter operations, to dog training basics, to wildlife rescue, Camp Henry participants will volunteer alongside shelter staff while learning how everyone works together to encourage adoptions and save lives.
Spaces in this one-week summer program are available on a first come, first serve basis. The application goes live Monday, April 3.
Every month, Animal Care & Control features a volunteer who’s making a difference for the animals at the shelter.
