What impact does volunteering have? 

Volunteering at the animal shelter makes a big difference in the lives of shelter animals!  Whether you are cleaning kennels, exercising animals, or assisting with adoption events, you are helping ensure that the animals in our shelter are receiving the best care possible during their stay with us.

WHAT activities do volunteers participate in?

As a volunteer, you can participate in several different volunteering assignments. Each volunteer activity requires a different level of training and supervision. All volunteers begin their volunteering journey in the areas of kennel cleaning and pet exercise/socialization and may move on to perform other assignments with experience and training. 

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Kennel cleaning
  • Animal exercise/socialization
  • Grooming
  • Assisting with off-site adoption events
  • Animal transportation


Please complete the application and submit it digitally to mbas@montbelvieu.net or drop it off in person at the Mont Belvieu Animal Shelter.
