Animal focused volunteer activities include walking and playing with animals, assisting with dog playgroups, reading to animals, photo/video of animals, bathing and grooming, fostering, Borrow A Buddy and more.

The SPCA of Texas is here for pets and their people, and we have lots of volunteer roles that interact with the animal-loving public. Community focused volunteer opportunities include adoption counseling, mobile adoptions, pet pantries, vaccination events, job/volunteer fairs, client follow up and group experience support.
Volunteers truly provide behind-the-scenes power for the entire SPCA of Texas. Volunteer opportunities include laundry, cleaning, enrichment building, inventory management, sewing, data entry and deliveries/drop offs. Roles can be one-time or an ongoing volunteer leadership opportunity.
Volunteers in our Foster program provide animals with a comfortable, loving home while they await adoption, recover from medical procedures, grow from an infant to an adoptable age, or live their remaining days knowing love and support.
