Please park and head to the new Education Building for your volunteer shift. Our Generation SERVE activity lead will meet you there!

This activity is for all ages! 

This is a modified, in person volunteering opportunity. Detailed instructions and educational resources will be sent to you upon registration. A COVID waiver from both Generation SERVE and our nonprofit partner will be required. Please be sure to review our Generation SERVE waiver HERE and return your signed copy to

We are so excited to be able to return to Harris County Animal Shelter to volunteer in person with safety protocols in place to help the animals waiting for their forever homes! We will meet in their brand new Education Center where we can socially distance. Masks will be required! We will make dog and cat toys and may also make rice sock warmers to comfort and warm puppies and kittens. We may also make thank you cards to distribute to adopting families.

Because the shelter requires you to be over 16 for direct animal interaction, we will not be directly interacting with the animals. But we may be able to get a tour and see the animals if the shelter is not too busy and we can maintain safe distancing requirements.
