Individual Volunteering


Without the helping hands of volunteers The SPCA of Texas would not be able to impact the lives of the many animals in our care. It takes a large team of dedicated individuals to keep our animals cared for 365 days a year.

We ask that volunteers who would like to work with animals in our shelter sign-up for a regular shift at least 2 times per month. We provide training and guidance to ensure that all of our furry friends have the best care. If coming in twice a month is a little more than you can commit, please send us an email about joining our Special Events Team at *Regular volunteers can volunteer at events as well.

SPCA of Texas Voices

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
