Funds raised are used for Animal Adoptions, medical supplies, and other needs the shelter could not normally afford, as well as low-cost spay and neuter and awareness programs.


Benefits to spaying/neutering your pet

Millions of animals are euthanized each year simply because they do not have a home.  Preventing unplanned pregnancies significantly reduces this number.

Links to some low cost Spay Neuter options.

While we wish we could be “out of business” and that all animals were safely in their loving homes, the reality is this just isn’t the case. One of the easiest ways to reduce the number of unwanted animals in shelters is to  spay or neuter your pet before there is an accident & you end up with an unwanted litter. Click to read more!

Yes, kittens are cute and lovable, but who is going to save the 1000 who we can’t find homes for? Please consider spaying/neutering your cat before you have an unwanted litter & the kittens end up in our animal shelters.

 If there wasn’t a problem with pet overpopulation, Friends of Rowlett Animals would not exist!

We can always use more volunteers to go up to the shelter to walk dogs, play with dogs, and play with cats. Even if you only have 1 hour every week or 1 hour a month, that time could make a big difference in the life of a shelter animal.

Dog handlers to assist photographers during our Photo sessions.  We can always use a 2nd or 3rd set of hands to take the dogs out of their kennel, potty, exercise, then calm them down enough to have them pose for 4 or 5 good photos for our adoption posters.

Videographer – we need someone who can go up to the shelter once a week & shoot some short 10-15 second videos of the animals available for adoption. We try to take the dogs out to the play areas for or photos & videos.

Article and News Contributors -  Articles could highlight a shelter pet, follow up with an adopted pet, highlight one of the volunteers, talk about recent events, etc. And perhaps we could start monthly newsletter or just add it to our Posts & News blog section to start.

If you would like to volunteer or would like more information, please Contact us!
