More Details

The primary objective of Dallas Animal Services is to achieve a safe and healthy community for people and animals.  We can't do it without the amazing dedication of people throughout Dallas who volunteer their time to help our pets find their new homes.

Volunteers with DAS provide enrichment time for shelter pets, help customers find adoptable pets for their homes, and help with community outreach and pet adoption events. 

If you are 18 years of age or older, we invite you to register for an upcoming Volunteer Orientation. Volunteers under the age of 18, you must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all times. Please email our Volunteer Coordinator at directly before attending an upcoming orientation.

Volunteers have the flexibility to serve seven days a week during our operating hours which makes volunteering a convenient fit for almost any schedule.
