Group Volunteering

Our group volunteering activities allow for corporate, school, or organization groups to conduct one-time volunteer projects at APA! Volunteer groups are typically groups of 10-15 people that volunteer for 2-hour shifts. Volunteer groups operate on a first come, first served basis, and fill up quickly.

Group Interest Form


One of our most popular requests from small groups and organizations is to take a tour of our Town Lake Animal Center facility. Due to the nature of our work and limited personnel, we do ask for a minimum donation amount and a certain number of chaperones per child for youth groups.

Ages 12-17

We always want to be supportive of teens and kids with a giving spirit. We ask that parents/legal guardians complete an orientation and volunteer with their children who wish to volunteer on site.

Under 12 Years Old

We do recognize that children under 12 years also want to be philanthropic and that not all parents may have the ability to volunteer with their children, so we’ve created a few activities that kids can do at home or school to contribute to APA! and earn volunteer hours.
