Volunteer: Adoption events! Volunteer to help dogs find forever homes!

We are looking for dedicated volunteers to help dogs and cats find forever homes!

Every Saturday and Sunday, we have adoption events at PetSmart and need volunteers to help at these events. Activities include walking dogs, taking care of animals, and interacting with the public to help animals find forever home. Saturday adoption events take place at the Dunvale Petsmart (8380 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77063) and Sunday adoption events take place at the Bunker Hill Petsmart (9718 Katy Fwy, Houston, TX 77055). 

Volunteering at these events is extremely helpful because the more dogs we are able to get adopted, the more we can save.
