Volunteering with Lewisville Animal Services can be a rewarding way to help the homeless pets of our community and to learn more about the shelter and its operations. Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us.

Volunteers with Lewisville Animal Services help with the daily operations at the facility and raise awareness of animals needing a home.

A few important things to note:

  • We are seeking volunteers who can commit to frequent service for at least 4-6 months. We do not have an hourly requirement but we do request that you can help several times a month (even if just an hour each visit) for at least four-six months.
  • We do not allow volunteers under 16 years of age.
  • All volunteers over the age of 18 must submit a background check.
  • Any individual who are 16-17 years old must fill out and have a waiver of liability notarized and signed by a parent.
  • We do not sign off on court ordered community service hours.
  • We will sign off on National Honor Society or school related course hours.
  • Participation in Jog a Dog is available after you have contributed 30 hours of service.
  • Lewisville Animal Services is not a "no-kill" facility.

Volunteering with Lewisville Animal Services can be a slow process and can sometimes take a month (or more) to begin. Due to requirements for a background check and orientation dates, we ask all individuals to please be patient with the process.

We do not permit walk in volunteering.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or would like to learn more about the process to being a volunteer at the shelter, the first step is to complete a Volunteer Application Form.

 After you complete the application, you will receive an email with detailed instructions of how to begin volunteering. Please follow instructions in the email. If you have not received an email, please email or contact the shelter.
