Volunteer or Foster

At Harris County Pets, volunteers and fosters mean everything to us! Our greatest asset are our volunteers and fosters - the time, energy, dedication, and expertise that they bring to our programs is unmatched. The more people willing to help, the more pets we can find loving homes for!

Whether you are looking to volunteer your time or open your home to foster a deserving dog or cat, Harris County Pets wants you to join our team!





With animals coming in every day, the work volunteers do increases the amount of pets we adopt every day. Volunteers make a difference in a Harris County Pets' life!  We have many volunteer opportunities to choose from and a flexible volunteer schedule. 





As a foster parent, you can provide a safe environment for an animal to learn to become a pet! We are ALWAYS in search of great foster homes willing to take in animals in need of a warm bed and a good meal.  We also have SHORT TERM foster opportunities!
