Foster & Volunteer


Become a Parker Paws Volunteer

If you have a desire to make a positive impact on an animal’s life, we’d love to have your help. We have many opportunities available for you and your family!

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age with no criminal background. Teenagers may volunteer if their parent/guardian is also a volunteer and with them at any events.

Become a Parker Paws Foster Parent

Fostering saves lives and foster homes are essential to our adoption efforts. Parker Paws provides food, veterinary care, and promotes the pet online and at adoption events until a new family is found. A foster parent provides love and a temporary home until the pet finds a forever home. Not sure if you want to foster? No problem! Test it out by becoming a “substitute” foster by stepping in for one or two weeks to cover our hardworking fosters when needed.

Volunteer Opportunities Include:

  • Becoming a full-time, part-time or substitute foster parent by bringing an adoptable pet into your home
  • Cleaning and caring for cats at the Weatherford PetSmart adoption center
  • Photographing our rescued pets for social media and marketing materials and documenting adoption events
  • Sending us your monthly TCAP Free Rabies Ad found in the Weatherford NOW magazine
  • Coordinating with shelters, rescue groups, and the public for intake of pets
  • Assessment of pets prior to intake
