Become a Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the homeless animals at the Houston Humane Society! Volunteers are the backbone to the Houston Humane Society’s mission of helping homeless pets and helping animal cruelty survivors recover more quickly by giving them love.
Whether you want to help better the lives of the homeless animals or want to prevent animal abuse by raising awareness of the tragedies that occur when people stop caring for animals, your efforts really make a difference!
