Volunteer with our State Affairs Department in Texas
Help The HSUS protect animals in your state!
The State Affairs department’s volunteers support our state directors in their work to celebrate animals and confront cruelty in their states. Greater volunteer involvement can expand each state director’s reach into local communities and in the legislature.
We have opportunities in Texas for Events Volunteers to provide assistance to the state director by helping to prepare, promote, and carry out events related to animal protection.
Benefits of volunteering
Volunteers foster a deeper understanding of the animal protection issues in their state and are able to make a real difference for animals by helping to support the mission of The HSUS. Volunteers have the opportunity to strengthen various skills, gain knowledge of The HSUS and learn how the work of the State Affairs department fits into the larger picture of animal protection.
