Adoption Events/Dog Socializing/Cat Condos
We hold adoption events almost every weekend and, throughout the month, we hit many different parts of the Metroplex. Our adoption event teams transport animals and equipment to and from the events, walk the dogs during the event, answer questions from the public and schedule home visits for potention adopters and fosters.

We need transporters throughout the week to transport dogs and cats between boarding facilities and veterinary clinics. On weekends, we need transporters to deliver animals and equipment to adoption events. You don't need an 18-wheeler to transport, anyone with a car, truck or SUV can help.
Paws in the City is an all-volunteer organization - which is a nice way of saying that we try not to pay for anything we can get for free! In fact, almost 95% of our revenue goes towards medical expenses, boarding and training. We rely heavily on volunteers to step to the plate and get everything else done. Almost everyone can help us in some way - most people have skills that they don't realize can help. Other people develop skills as they get more involved. Take a few minutes to see if you could donate a few hours of your time each month to help save an animal's life. Click here to get involved!
Please note that all volunteers who interact with our adoptable pets must be 18 or older.

Dog Socializing/Cat Condos
Dog and cat socialization is an important factor both in the animals quality of life, and in the adoption process. Boarding facilities are geared to provide attention to the dogs for short term stays, but many of our animals will be in boarding facilites for many weeks. During the week, we always need people who are good working with animals to supplement the care provided by the boarding facilities, especially for the larger breed dogs. Animals that are socialized show much better in the weekend events and during meet and greets. Click for more info.
