PALS volunteers run a pet food collection at Half Price BooksWant to get praised and thanked everyday? Be a volunteer! We need your help. Please complete the form below and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Volunteer to foster kittens, assist with fundraisers or Pet Fest, deliver fliers in the area, and more.

PALS isn't an animal shelter, so there are no dogs to walk but we do have cats and kittens that need you! Foster one or two in your home, we can provide all the supplies and vet care.

Not into cats? That's OK, there are lots of other ways to help make pets lives better....

PALS depends on volunteers for a variety of jobs, here are just a few:

  • Assist with our TNRM efforts (trapping and/or feeding in feral cat colonies)
  • Foster cats and kittens
  • Help coordinate special events like our Spring Garage Sale or Pet Fest
  • Help with our voucher applications
  • Help educate children and adults in the community
  • Write grants to fund our programs
  • Tell your friends and neighbors about PALS (Download and print PDF of English Flier / Spanish Flier)
  • Talk to community organizations about PALS

A Word from Our Clients

  • I am so grateful to PALS for allowing me to have my dogs spayed. Thanks so much for this great program!

  • Your help has given my dogs and I the opportunity to have them spayed with no more worries or stress and allows us to help make a difference. Thank you, PALS!

  • Thank you so much. We had a pregnant cat adopt us and we were able to get her and her kittens fixed because of you.

  • Now my dog is able to calmly live her life, without being in heat. She still has a rambunctious personality, but she doesn't try to slip out the door to find a mate.

  • When we moved here, we were surprised to find so many wilds cats living in San Marcos. As I’ve increasingly tried to help – by catching kittens and their moms and finding homes for them – PALS has been a tremendous help. They have helped me learn about trapping, pay for spaying and neutering, and fostering kittens. Together with PALS I was able to trap and find homes for 13 kittens last year.

  • Thank you for all that you do, and for the services PALS offers. Prevention is paramount in the quest to lessen the number of strays on the streets. Without the voucher I would not have been able to pay for the blood test in addition to the surgery. Thank you again.
