Volunteer Program

Pet Owners Clip ArtAbilene Animal Services houses approximately 9,400 animals per year. The assistance of volunteers to support staff can greatly enhance the program opportunities to adopt more animals and improve save rates. The strategic use of volunteers is important and though Animal Services wants to accommodate as many volunteers as possible, however priority will be on those program opportunities that best support the animals and lead to positive outcomes for the animals at the shelter.
