The base of any successful rescue lies in the foundation of its volunteers.  Without volunteers like you, we cannot continue on our mission to save the voiceless.  We are so grateful for each adn every one of our volunteers for the roles they play in assisting and rescuing the dogs of SSR.  

We are always seeking active and motivated volunteers, and we encourage you to join our team! 

What Does VOLUNTEERING Mean and What Is needed?

What exactly does volunteering for SSR mean? It means you'll become part of an incredible community of animal lovers just like you!  Together, we'll work together to save the lives of the suffering and neglected dogs of South Texas. From networking, training, and administrative support to transporting dogs (and everything in between), we need you!

the opportunities to volunteer are numerous!
There are so many ways you can volunteer and make a significant impact within SSR. Whether you have 1hr a week or 20, there's a place for your unique talents & motivation.

VOLUNTEERING saves lives

Just like foster homes, volunteers are critical to the success of our mission. Without volunteers, our organization would grind to a halt - they're that important!  By volunteering with SSR, you're directly contributing to the number of dogs we - as an organization - can save from euthanasia and suffering.

you make a direct positive impact on a dog's future

We take in dogs that have experienced abuse, cruelty, neglect, abandonment, etc. As a volunteer, you have the chance and opportunity to be part of this incredible experience.
