Volunteer at the Animal Adoption Center

We love our Animal Control Volunteers and could not be successful without their valuable, meaningful help at the shelter.

If you think you are interested in volunteering some of your time in support of your community – and the animals – please feel free to contact the Animal Control Volunteer Coordinator at 972-551-6641 or email adoption@cityofterrell.org.

We have several opportunities available for volunteers at the shelter. Anyone should be able to find a place to pitch in and contribute.

Prospective volunteers will be asked to fill out a brief questionnaire for a minimal background and driver’s license check. Our volunteers must have a good driving record in order to help us transport animals or operate city equipment.

We have a number of volunteer tasks available, including:

  • Shelter Cleaning
  • Animal Cleaning and Feeding
  • Animal Basic Medical Treatments
  • Animal Weighing and Charting
  • Computer Entry
  • Facebook Page Monitoring
  • Adoption Events
  • Animal Exercise Program
  • Records Filing
  • Animal Promotions
