Faithful Paws volunteers can serve at our inpatient center in Dallas (located near the intersections of 635 and 75) or in facilities and/or private homes around DFW. We can schedule you for regular weekly visits or you can serve "as-needed." We are very flexible. We accept trained dogs, cats, guinea pigs, and rabbits.
All volunteers must complete an in-person Orientation and online application and submit to a background check, drug test, and annual TB test, at no cost to the volunteer. All pets must be up-to-date with their vaccinations and trainings. Trainings can be completed through organizations such as Therapy Dogs International, Pet Partners, or Heart of Texas Therapy Dogs. Please have the certifications/trainings for your therapy animals completed before you attend Orientation.
