Family Volunteering

Parents and legal guardians of children under the age of 18 may volunteer with Dallas Animal Services. Given the minor’s age, engagement in the volunteer processes is limited and must be accompanied and supervised parents/legal guardians at all times.

Family Volunteers
Parents and Legal Guardians of minor children (ages 10-17) excited about volunteering with shelter animals are welcome to volunteer as a Family Unit. Family Unit Volunteers would still follow the same processes as Ongoing DAS Volunteers.

Families Reading to Pets
An extension of our Kids Reading to Pets program, we offer families the opportunity to sit and read to our shelter dogs and cats Friday-Monday. Each family will be required to bring with them a donation of an unopened box of dog treats before they partake in Families Reading to Pets. Schedule your family to read to our shelter animals by clicking here.
