RHS has numerous volunteer opportunities. While fostering is our greatest support need, there are certainly other ways you can support RHS.

Meet the Pet events

RHS pets are offered for adoption each Saturday at “Meet the Pets” events. Volunteers staff the event and help with taking care of the pets, set up and tear down, and interacting with prospective adopters. Meet the Pets events usually have 2 shifts of 3 hours each available for beginning volunteers.

Meet the Pets is a great way to help if you have limited time or if you want to interact directly with the pets.

An Orientation Session is held once a month and is required before working at an adoption event. The orientation coordinator will be in contact with you after you sign up to let you know when the next session will be held.

Fundraising/Golf Tournament

RHS holds an annual Golf Tournament. This is our biggest fundraiser and we could use your help! Volunteer to help organize, promote, and run the event with us.


Help us spread the word about RHS and increase our exposure. If you have marketing expertise, we’d love to work with you.


Help educate the Richardson community about pet-related issues. These events help us generate awareness for animal rights and the work we do to save lives.

Community Service

RHS may be able provide limited hours (max 4 hours per week) to fulfill community service requirements. Attending an orientation session is required prior to volunteering and those sessions are held once per month.
