How You Can Help

Make a Donation or Monetary Contribution


Donations to the Weatherford Parker County Animal Shelter (WPCAS) help provide for the “extras” that allow the shelter staff and volunteers to make the animal's time in the shelter as pleasant as possible. Whether it’s a soft bed, a tasty treat, natural disaster or building improvements, your donation makes a homeless animal’s life a little easier. All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law and your generosity is greatly appreciated!

Contributions are accepted in the form of cash, check or money order made payable to the Weatherford Parker County Animal Shelter. Monetary contributions may be mailed to:

Volunteer

WPCAS is in the middle of rebuilding our volunteer program, but there are many things to do. To volunteer at the Animal Shelter, you must be at least 16 years of age and have a clear criminal history. Volunteering at the animal shelter consists of walking dogs, taking photographs, bathing, grooming, offsite adoptions and other various tasks the volunteer would be interested in doing.

The goal of the volunteer program is to assist the shelter in getting animals adopted. The goal is not cheap labor. Volunteers are not made to do anything they don't want to, but all volunteers do have to adhere to the shelter guidelines found in the Volunteer Manual.

If interested in becoming a volunteer please click on the link below. This takes you to our Volunteer software, Better Impact. Once you have completed your application please come in to the shelter to fill out a background check and a liability waiver. There is a $5 fee for the background check. Both of these are needed to become a registered volunteer.
