Volunteer Opportunities 


Foster Homes

Please see the link on the home page “how to foster”. Fostering is the most important and needed aspect of volunteering and we welcome the time that you can give.


Short-term dog sitting/fostering

We often have the need for dogs to go to foster homes for short time periods (1 day to 2 weeks) while they are worked into the program, or when foster homes are out-of-town, etc. If longer term fostering is difficult for your schedule, then short-term fostering may be a possibility and it’s a huge help for us.





Helping to transport both items (crates, etc) and dogs in and around the Austin and San Antonio area.


Dog Training (Obedience training)

Some of our dogs come from neglectful and attention starved backgrounds and would benefit from some basic dog training or obedience work. If you have any training or special abilities with dog training we have dogs for you! Typically basic commands and manners are needed: sitting, leash training, crate training, etc.



If you would like more information on the following areas or have an idea on how you can help and do not see it listed here, please contact us at houndrescue.atx@gmail.com and let us know.
