Texas CARES leverages Volunteer Match to bring good people and good causes together. If helping cats is a cause that lights you up, please visit the Texas CARES Volunteer Match.org profile page to search for volunteer opportunities, or browse the ones below.

Texas CARES has an adoption center at the PetSmart in Prosper at 1001 South Preston Road. Volunteers are needed every Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 -3 p.m. to assist with cage cleaning and socializing the kitties. Senior Volunteers need to be available one day every month and should be at least 18 years of age. Other volunteers can sign up when convenient for them and should be at least 14 years of age.

Texas CARES needs great foster parents to help care for our adoptable cats and kittens in your home. They will stay with you until a great forever home can be found and they rotate through our adoption center Texas CARES covers all medical expenses and can provide supplies. Additional information will be provided by our Foster Coordinator after we receive your application.

Help with kitty care in our adoption center where our cats reside in our PetSmart Adoption Center location in Prosper, TX. You also will be feeding, socializing, and playing with the cats to give them attention during the week. Weekly Volunteers must be at least 18 or accompanied by an adult.

Love taking pictures? Love kitties? Then we can use your help! Your pictures will be used in our adoptable cat’s profiles on our website and social media. And you can take them when it’s convenient for you! We can also use your skills at one of our biggest fundraisers of the year – Santa Photos!

We are always looking for skilled professionals to help our mission. Are you a licensed CPA? Attorney? Does your company match volunteer hours? We’d love to connect and talk about ways you can help!

As a non-profit, we are always looking for new and exciting ways to raise money. If you have ideas on how we can do that, or know of grants we should be applying for, then please reach out. We would love to meet you!


Every year we have a few volunteers dress up as Santa so folks can have their animal’s pictures taken with him. It’s a lot of fun, and a great fundraiser for us. We also try to participate in sport events in the community to meet new volunteers and donors. If this is something that sounds like fun, then apply to volunteer today!
