Ways to Get Involved

Lend a Hand

Houston SPCA provides a wide-variety of opportunities for caring, compassionate people, just like you, to join us as we save lives.

Foster an Animal

Fostering at the Houston SPCA means joining a family of caring people who support our lifesaving mission and have a passion for animals — just like you! No experience is necessary — we provide you with all the needed supplies including Hill’s Science Diet pet food, litter, crates, toys, bedding as well as medicine, if necessary.

Get Started

If you're a Houston SPCA volunteer, tell us your story. What does volunteering mean to you? How many fosters have you welcomed into your home? Send us your story — we might share it in a newsletter or online!
