Volunteer at Hillsborough County Animal Services

Recently, we have told you about our exciting work with Save 90 to increase the live release rate of animals at our county shelter.  One of the important components of creating a facility where all healthy and treatable animals find loving homes is a strong volunteer base.  And although ACT loves our volunteers, another great way to help animals is to volunteer at Hillsborough County Animal Services (HCAS).

They have frequent volunteer orientations.  The next one is Saturday, June 16th at 10:00 a.m. at HCAS, 440 N. Falkenburg Road, Tampa.  There are many ways to help animals that include providing administrative support, fostering a pet by providing a temporary home, assisting with vet exams, walking and training dogs, cleaning kennels, providing enrichment and socialization to dogs and cats and other rewarding work.  Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.  HCAS does have a Junior Volunteer Program for 16 and 17 year olds seeking community service hours for school.  However, that program is filled until October.

For more information on volunteering at HCAS, contact Cathy Carr, Volunteer Coordinator at HCAS at carrm@hillsboroughcounty.org or (813) 612-5388.
