Operations Supervisor

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Prairie Paws Adoption Center. We rely heavily on the assistance of our caring, dedicated, and hard-working volunteers. Each and every day, our volunteers help to improve the lives of the homeless animals here at Prairie Paws Adoption Center.

There are numerous ways to assist at our shelter. Volunteers help with animal care through assisting with kennel maintenance, exercise, training, socialization and mental stimulation. They assist in helping to find good homes, foster pets that need extra time or help, as well as educating both children and adults about responsible pet ownership and kindness to animals. Volunteers also assist at many special Prairie Paws community and fund-raising events.

All volunteers must pre-register and attend an orientation. The orientation will provide you with background information about Grand Prairie Animal Services history, programs, and services of the shelter, as well as basic animal handling.
