Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers Have you got TWO HOURS a MONTH to Spare and Share? Meet New Friends & Hang with Like-Minded People!

Sometimes it's a good idea to try something new, meet new people in different situations, right? Gets you up and out the door, away from the TV and the computer. It can change your perspective and oftentimes it can make you feel really good because you're doing something positive.

We are looking for help at our "Meet and Greets." We do them all over Austin! You can choose a convenient location or even someplace new! Bring a friend with you, meet great people and play with all the wonderful pups. While there, we let folks know about fostering or adoption opportunities and what Lizzy's is all about! The reception is ALWAYS POSITIVE! Plus, it's Great Karma! It's a fast two hours a month. They are typically scheduled for 11-1, Saturday or Sunday. We take care of set up and break down. All you need to do is show up!

Here are all the great locations - we do not schedule meet and greets until we have volunteers to help...:
Lofty Dog North on Anderson Lane
Lofty Dog South on Slaughter
Jo's Coffee on 2nd Street, Austin
Healthy pet South at Wm Cannon and Mopac
Healthy Pet north 183 and 620 area
Healthy Pet Seaholm in Downtown Austin
Tomlinson's Lakeway on HWY 620 South
Tomlinson's Escarpment in Circle C

Send us an email to and let us know which weekend each month you are interested volunteering and the location you prefer. We so look forward to meeting you soon!

Advantages of Fostering a LAH Companion Animal

Foster families are desperately needed! If we have more foster families, we can help more senior companion animals that nobody else wanted simply because they are elderly.

Some think that fostering an elderly/geriatric or even terminally ill companion animal is sad. It is an extremely rewarding experience. We feel lucky to be able make such an impact in the lives of these companion animals that others turned away. They deserve a happy end of life, no matter how long that may be. We have had some for a couple of years. We are looking for long term fosters because we do not know how long until the pet is adopted or until they pass on and we do not want them going from place to place to place in a shorter amount of time. It is very disorienting for them

As a foster family, any purchase that you make on behalf of the foster companion animal can be a tax deduction on your personal tax return for that year.

If are considering adopting, but aren't sure that is the way you want to go, an alternative to adopting right off is fostering. Email us at for questions or a foster application. Thank you for considering fostering a Lizzy's Animal Hospice companion animal.

Also some of the companion animals are not elderly. They were brought in to LAH as a special project, and are happy healthy, and much younger!!! Check them out!
