Many Ways To Help

Thank you for your interest in joining our Volunteer Team. There are many volunteer opportunities both in-shelter working directly with the animals and in other supportive roles both in- and off-shelter. Practically any talent you may have can help the animals in some way.

Hands-on programs include walking, grooming, socializing, adoption and fund raising events. If you choose not to work directly with the animals, other volunteer positions are available such as ongoing fund raising efforts and special projects that arise during the year.

Age Restrictions:
Due to insurance requirements, volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. Volunteers under 18 years of age must volunteer with their parent or legal guardian who must attend the orientation to become a volunteer and complete the necessary forms requiring a parent/guardian signature.

Student Service Hours:
HSPC cannot place volunteers needing to meet a short-term service requirement of less than 12 hours due to the amount of training involved with becoming a volunteer.

Steps to Become a Volunteer:·

  1. Complete a Volunteer Application. Select your area of interest below and submit your volunteer application online.   Applications are also available in-shelter at 14600 Colonel Glenn Road in Little Rock. Once we have received your completed application, you will begin receiving email notifications when our monthly orientation has been scheduled.
  2. Attend a Volunteer Orientation. Those interested in becoming a volunteer MUST attend an orientation prior to volunteering. You will learn about our HSPC programs, about our policies, about basic animal behavior, and gain an understanding of the many ways you can make a difference and ultimately help find homes for the animals in our shelter.

We hope you’ll join our group of animal-loving volunteers. It’s fun and rewarding!

In-Shelter

Hands-on programs include walking, grooming, socializing, manners training, and sometimes cleaning. Other hands-on opportunities involve taking dogs to off-site adoption events, to festivals and fundraisers and to nursing homes through our Puppy Love program. Volunteers are also needed to help transport animals to media appearances and vet appointments.

Community

For those who choose not to work directly with the animals, other volunteer jobs are available. We also need people interested in landscaping and lawn maintenance, maintaining Collection Banks, helping with Rummage Sales and the HSPC Resale Booth, and participating in other one-time special projects that arise during the year.

Foster

Foster parents help save the lives of animals who are fragile and at high risk. We are looking for people who can commit two to six weeks of fostering to take in underaged pets and/or nursing moms with litters who are too young or sick to be spayed/neutered for adoption.
