Our organization relies heavily on volunteers and fosters. Without their hard work, dedication and commitment to League City Animal Shelter (LCAS) we would not be able to offer many of the programs we have at LCAS or continue to be a no-kill City.
Volunteers are essential to our lifesaving mission. In order for you to get the most out of your experience at LCAS, there are a few requirements we ask volunteers to meet.
- Submit an Online Volunteer Application, which includes signing a volunteer agreement and a Release and Waiver of Liability form.
- Complete an online general volunteer orientation session.
- Be able to work independently and meet the volunteer requirements – including the Essential Capabilities (PDF) of our volunteers.
- Complete online, hands-on, and attend all other additional training sessions as required by LCAS.
- Volunteer at least monthly.
- Treat all animals with kindness and concern for their welfare.
- Represent themselves and LCAS in a professional manner and treat clients, staff, and other volunteers with respect.
- Sign-up and volunteer for 4 Jump Start (essential shelter help) activities at the shelter prior to participating in various LCAS volunteer opportunities.
- Must complete necessary training in 3 weeks to remain active.
- All school hours will be verified after completing 4 or more Jump Start/Essential Shelter Support hours, or 2 months and 15 hours of specific department hours of volunteer service.
Both youth and parent/legal guardian must each submit an individual online application, complete an online general volunteer orientation, and provide a parent waiver prior to volunteering. Youth will need to volunteer with said parent/legal guardian at all times after the above steps are complete. Volunteer activities are limited for the purpose of safety.
Both youth and parent/legal guardian must each submit an individual online application, complete an online general volunteer orientation, and provide a parent waiver prior to volunteering. Youth may volunteer without a parent/legal guardian once the above steps are completed.
While LCAS recognizes that many bright minds in this age group have a philanthropic urge to help animals, LCAS does not allow anyone under the age of 12 to volunteer. We encourage individuals to check out a list of other activities your youth can do at home to help us save lives! Learn more by clicking on LCAS Group Volunteer Projects (PDF).
Our group volunteering activities allow for corporate, school, or organization groups to conduct one-time volunteer projects at LCAS. Volunteer groups are typically groups of 10-15 people that volunteer for 1 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 shelter. Due to the nature of our work and limited personnel, we do ask for a certain number of chaperones per child for youth groups.
