Volunteering At Lone Star 
As so many of our animals are long-term residents, the most important factor for their well-being is contentment. Daily play, petting, grooming, socialization, and specialized diet are the basis for which they stay healthy and happy. Not only do we need volunteers at the sanctuary, but we sometimes have functions to showcase the animals for fundraisers and adoption events. During these events we need volunteers to walk the dogs, talk to people who express interest in helping at the sanctuary, or donating money and supplies to support what we are doing.

We host Volunteer Orientations on every Saturday.


If you think you might be interested in helping us accomplish our mission of "Saving and Changing Lives," then we'd love to see you out here!



Please feel free to call our office at (432) 683-7387, or email us at:

Please note: all volunteers must have their own transportation, and volunteers under the age of 16 will require a parent or guardian to accompany them at all times. Drop-offs and pick-ups are not permitted. Volunteers must also sign a liability waiver before being allowed to volunteer. Volunteers under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to sign the liability waiver.

Community Service
We allow community service 7 days a week from 8-5pm. We do take lunch from 11:30-12:30 daily, so you must leave the property at that time. You can get 8 hours of community service a day if you start promptly at 8am, and if we have work for you (we make no assurances about the number of hours you can earn in any given day). Be sure to bring all required paperwork with you, and wear work-appropriate clothing that you do not mind getting dirty.

Every Community Service worker is required to read and sign a liability waiver, which you can download below. C.S. workers under the age of 18 are advised to print the waiver so that a parent or legal guardian can sign it, and bring it on their first day. A C.S. worker can not work without a properly signed waiver.

If you have not done community service at Lone Star Sanctuary for Animals before, then you will be required to show up on your first day at 8:00 sharp. You will not be admitted late. (This is because we must give you a quick training orientation, which we are unable to do once we begin with our daily work routine). We strongly advise you check the links below for our rules and waiver.

Space and work for Community Service is limited, and offered on an as-needed basis. You are advised to show up a few minutes early.
