Join the Movement

The mission of Rescued Pets Movement is to save as many pets as possible from needless euthanasia. And with an estimated 1 million homeless dogs and cats wandering the streets of Houston, coupled with shelters that are already overcrowded and overburdened, we have our work cut out for us.

We fundamentally believe that our successes can be directly attributed to the passionate people who support the work we do. From donors and drivers to fosters and volunteers, we know first-hand the difference it makes to have enthusiastic volunteers supporting your cause.

As a non-profit, we count on our volunteers to help support our efforts so we can stay financially lean. It’s crucial that we use the bulk of our funds where they’re needed most – saving and improving the lives of homeless animals across the Greater Houston area.

We’re always on the lookout for more committed volunteers, so we’d love to have your help!

Ways to Volunteer

With a constant influx of homeless pets, we keep very busy here at RPM, and there is no shortage of tasks for our volunteers. With the volume and variety of work we need done, RPM truly has a volunteer opportunity available for people of every age, background, interest, and level of volunteer experience.

While we will always need foster volunteers to house and care for pets – and drivers to get our rescued pets where they need to go – we also need help with behind-the-scenes work. This includes tasks such as performing administrative office functions, fundraising, event planning, photography, and good old grunt work.

For a full list of the opportunities available to our volunteers, check out our volunteer form.
