What Is It?
A nonprofit that works to rescue, rehabilitate, and find permanent, loving homes for abandoned animals in Houston’s “Corridor of Cruelty” (east of I-59 off Little York).
Help replenish feeding stations, transport animals or supplies, work at adoption events, take photos or videos, donate needed items, and more.
Minimum Age to Volunteer
All ages are welcome, but volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
No specific requirement; all help is welcome.
ADOPTION SITE VOLUNTEER
CRI adoption events take place at the Tomball kennel and at various locations around the Houston area. Volunteers are needed to set up the adoption site, unload/load and walk dogs, provide water and treats to dogs, promote and answer questions about CRI, and help with paperwork.
There are about 40 feeding stations throughout the area where CRI works. Volunteers drive the route, replenish the stations, and report to the team on the animals on the streets. When an animal is approved for intake, street team volunteers pick them up and take them to a clinic or our kennel facility.
Great portraits and videos of the dogs in CRI’s program help them get adopted. CRI also needs volunteers to ride with the street team to capture what volunteers do on the streets and in the community daily. CRI also would love your help at its fundraisers and other events.
COLLECT NEEDED ITEMS
Donations are always needed and welcome. Needed items include food, training treats, peanut butter, blankets, aluminum pans for food, and much more.
A link to CRI’s Kennel and Street Team Amazon wish lists is here.
CRI needs volunteers to visit the dogs at its rescue facility to give them more time out of their kennels, and help with socialization, training,and enrichment. Also helpers are needed for various tasks around the facility such as bathing dogs, doing laundry, cleaning kennels, making repairs, or supplies drives.
FUNDRAISING & SPECIAL EVENTS VOLUNTEER
CRI has many events to help raise money and awareness. Volunteers are needed to organize, staff, and promote the events.
