What do volunteers do?

Canine Enrichment

Our canine enrichment program ensures our dogs are active, well-socialized, have opportunities for stress relief, and are mentally healthy during their stay at AgHS. Activities could include dog walking, enrichment activities, training, and other tasks. 

Feline Enrichment

Volunteers in these activities will be involved in direct feline socialization, basic grooming, and cleaning activities. Our feline enrichment program ensures our cats are active, well-socialized, have opportunities for stress relief, and are mentally healthy during their stay here at the shelter. 

Court Appointed Community Service

 

At this time, opportunities for court appointed volunteers are full through the end of the year. We are not able to add any additional opportunities at this time. While shifts may become available if volunteers remove themselves from shifts, we cannot guarantee openings. Our 2022 Spring calendar will be posted mid-December.

Our Court-Appointed Community Service program is for volunteers needing to complete hours assigned by a court for any reason. Aggieland Humane does not accept the following categories of charges. This is not an exhaustive list and Aggieland Humane may deny other charges.

Violent Crimes
Animal Abuse/Neglect
Drug-related (including paraphernalia)
Theft
Weapons-related
Felony charges

Volunteers will be able to view and schedule volunteer shifts after their application has been approved, and they have completed an online orientation. This process generally takes 2-4 days.

We offer volunteer shifts Monday-Friday between the hours of 12:00 pm and 5:00 pm. Saturday shifts are limited at this time. Availability of shifts depends on the number of volunteers currently in the program. Generally volunteers are able to complete 2-4 hours per day, but may be able to work more hours during some times of the year.

Spay/Neuter

Spay/Neuter volunteers assist with surgery recovery and other important tasks on the mobile spay/neuter truck at the shelter and special events.

Administration

Administrative volunteers help in many different roles including our call center, follow up phone calls to adopters, sorting and filing paperwork and donations, data entry, and other vital tasks.

If you are detail oriented and would like to provide excellent customer service to our visitors or if you are looking for a less hands-on way to further our mission, this may be the role for you!

Canine Training

Canine training volunteers will learn basic and advanced training concepts and apply them during volunteer activities. Volunteers can train basic commands, manners, or fun tricks here at the shelter or take their skills out on the town on one of our doggie field trips!

Community Engagement

Volunteers help with many special events throughout the year. You can serve as a Team Lead and help with adoptions, give out information at tabling events, or many of our other community engagement opportunities.

Some of our most common events include offsite adoptions at Petsmart and Sterling Subaru, our annual Wiener Fest, and the national Clear the Shelters event.

Trap Neuter Return (TNR)

Our TNR program helps to reduce the overpopulation of feral cats in our community. Community members who wish to participate in this program can receive assistance with sterilization and vaccination of feral cats on their property.

Volunteer opportunities in this area include assisting with trapping and transportation of feral cats, intake and discharge on surgery days, and assisting with various tasks for county assistance days.

Volunteer Mentor Program

Help train new volunteers to do what you do! We want all volunteers to feel confident and educated so they feel comfortable in their role and can spend more time and energy loving our pets. Volunteers interested in this opportunity will have the opportunity to coach new volunteers through their first few shifts at the shelter and show them the ropes.
