Volunteers posing at the animal care and adoption center.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at League City Animal Care! Our organization relies heavily on our team of trained volunteers. Without their hard work, dedication, and commitment to our mission, we would not be able to offer many of the lifesaving programs currently in place that help us remain a no-kill community.

There are so many ways to help us save lives every day at League City Animal Care – ranging from direct animal care, assisting adopters, pet training programs and play groups, clerical assistance, and more!

Please take a moment to review our Guidelines to learn more about volunteering at League City Animal Care and to determine if this is the program for you.

Volunteer Guidelines

Our volunteers are essential to our lifesaving mission. When you volunteer with LCAC, you’re giving the animals one of the greatest gifts of all — your time.

Whether you’re spending one-on-one time with the animals, helping at events and fundraisers or assisting in some other way, you’re helping the animals to feel loved. For that, everyone here at LCAC is incredibly grateful, especially the animals. We wish you an enjoyable, safe, fulfilling and rewarding volunteer experience!

  • Ages 16+: While LCAC recognizes that many bright minds younger than this age have a philanthropic urge to help animals, we do not allow anyone under the age of 16 to volunteer. Volunteers under the age of 18 will be required to have a parent/guardian sign their liability release and essential capability forms. We encourage individuals to check out a list of other activities your youth can do at home to help us save lives! Learn more by clicking on LCAC Group Volunteer Projects (PDF)
  • Time Commitment: LCAC Volunteers, especially those who help us with animal care, go through an extensive training which requires a commitment of our city resources. As a result, we require that volunteers make a commitment to volunteer a minimum of two shifts per month and for a minimum of six months.
  • Community Service Requirements: Judicial (or court mandated) community service hours cannot be earned at League City Animal Care. If you require community service hours for school or other service organizations, we can provide a letter confirming your volunteer hours once the minimum time commitment of two shifts per month for six months has been met.
