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 fundraising events. If you choose not to work directly with the animals, other volunteer positions are available such as ongoing fundraising efforts and special projects that arise during the year.
Due to insurance requirements, volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. Youth volunteers must be at least 10 years of age and are required to volunteer with their parent/legal guardian present who has attended the new volunteer orientation. A parent or legal guardian must also complete the necessary forms requiring a parent/guardian’s signature.
Student/Community Service Hours:
Student volunteers must be 18 years of age and older. 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.
We do not offer volunteering for those seeking to fulfill a Court ordered Community Service requirement.
Steps to Become a Volunteer:·
- Complete a Volunteer Application. Complete the application below. You may also bring your completed application to the Shelter at 14600 Colonel Glenn Road, Little Rock, AR 72210.

- Attend a Volunteer Orientation. Those interested in becoming a volunteer MUST attend aa new volunteer 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!
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.
