Available Volunteer Positions

We rely heavily on volunteers to step up to the plate and get everything else done.  Almost everyone can help us in some way – most people have skills that they don’t realize can help.  Other people develop skills as they get more involved.  Take a few minutes to see if you could donate a few hours of your time each month to help save an animal’s life.

fostering

Fostering

Fostering is one of the most important, and most appreciated, volunteer activities. Fosters open their homes and hearts to one or more of our dogs or cats, and bring their animal to adoption events, hopefully at least twice a month. Staying at the events is optional. Fosters pay for food and provide love, Paws in the City pays for veterinary attention and medicines. Fostered animals get adopted more quickly and have less temperament issues - please help.

Home Check Volunteers

PITC conducts home checks for all adopters and fosters, and team members throughout the Dallas area and surrounding cities are needed to perform these visits. Whenever a home check is required, the request is sent to all team members; those able to conduct the visit near their home or work are asked to help at their convenience so that all areas of Dallas and surrounding cities are covered. Training is minimal, and a simple checklist is provided to ensure each home is safe and appropriate for PITC animals. We have a strong need for volunteers who can do this in the cities surrounding Dallas and Fort Worth.
