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.

There are numerous ways to assist at our shelter. Volunteers can:

  • Assist with kennel maintenance
  • Exercise pets 
  • Train animals
  • Socialize animals
  • Provide mental stimulation
  • Assist in helping pets find a good home
  • Foster pets that need extra time or help
  • Educate the community about responsible pet ownership and kindness to animals
  • Assist at many special Prairie Paws community and fundraising 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.
