All money we receive is used to care for animals with special medical needs (surgeries, treatment, long-term care, etc.) as well as for special projects at the shelter to provide comfortable conditions for the animals. Special projects can include play yard renovations, fence repair and addition/repair of other shelter amenities.
Volunteers ages 18 and older assist at the shelter by walking dogs, playing with animals and helping with other tasks as needed. Volunteers must pass a background check and attend a 2-hour training program. Allen Animal Services is not accepting new youth volunteers at this time.
Interested in fostering an animal? We're looking for foster families! Fosters must pass a background check, attend an orientation and complete training with a coordinator.
