Austin Animal Center Volunteer & Foster Information


Providing love, care and attention to the more than 18,000 animals the shelter takes in each year is no small feat! We need the support of hundreds of volunteers to ensure our cats, dogs and other animals get daily exercise and enrichment and are matched up with loving, forever families. Join our lifesaving volunteer team in America’s largest No Kill city and make a difference for homeless pets!

Whether you’re a group looking for a one-time opportunity, a youth group needing service hours, or an individual who wants to commit to regular volunteering, we have a place for you here at Austin Animal Center.  Go to our website here to learn more and to sign up for an orientation date!
