Our workplace partners help us give back to the animals we serve in a variety of different ways and now is your opportunity to join our pack! We offer year-round group opportunities to support shelter animals – take a look through our Partner Programs for ways that you can make a lasting impact on the animals that call our shelter their temporary home.

AHS corporate partners ensure our animals have the care and love they need each and every day. We offer year-round individual and group opportunities to engage with our animals while supporting their emotional and physical needs. Now is your opportunity to join our pack! We will work with you to create a partnership plan to help improve the lives of our animals and those who love them.

Onsite, Offsite, and Virtual Donation-Based Activities and Events

Service Days

Want to bring your group to volunteer at the AHS shelter? Through our Service Day program, we can accommodate groups of up to 20 volunteers per session.

Service Days are available Tuesday – Thursday for a recommended time of 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Service Days do not include hands-on contact with animals, but focus on very important aspects of shelter life that help animals in need (volunteers who help us with animal care go through an in-depth training process and commit to monthly hours. Click here to learn more.)

Each Service Day includes a behind-the-scenes tour, shelter improvement tasks, and a meet-and-greet with an animal. Service Days should be scheduled at least one month in advance at the shelter’s availability; not all dates will be available. Please email asmith@austinhumanesociety.org for more information, pricing, and to schedule!
