Volunteering With Us

Interested in volunteering to help our community's homeless and injured animals?

Experience the wonderful feeling of saving a life! Tulsa's Animal Welfare's Shelter volunteer program has a variety of options for anyone looking to help impact the lives of  the many animals that end up at the shelter. We need you to help us make a difference.

Located at 3031 N. Erie Avenue, Tulsa Animal Welfare cares for over 11,000 animals a year.  We house a variety of animals; some are homeless cats and dogs who need a safe, warm place to stay while waiting for a new family. Others are sick, injured or orphaned wild animals which require medical and rehabilitative care so that they can either be returned to the wild where they belong or to interested families and rescue organizations.

Tulsa Animal Welfare Shelter would not be able to help these animals without the support of dedicated and compassionate volunteers. Volunteers who are willing to donate hours of service to Animal Welfare each year assist us in providing direct care of animals, education, administrative projects, events outreach, and more.

Objective of the Volunteer Program

  • Offer support to the programs and services provided by Tulsa Animal Welfare
  • Aid in educating the citizens of Tulsa about humane and lawful treatment of animals
  • Enhance the human and animal bond through customer service and public relation efforts
