How You Can Help!

Volunteer opportunities are constantly changing as we grow and develop new programs. Below is a listing of current opportunities, but you will get more details and learn about the latest needs and options through email communications and Facebook updates.


Work from home to return phone calls and e-mails from the public about animals that No Kill Williamson County TN has up for adoption as well as Williamson County Animal Control. You will also serve as a resource for those who need assistance on what to do with a found/stray animal.

Animal Marketing

Help get animals adopted by marketing them! This team photographs Williamson County Animal Control animals for No Kill Williamson County TN’s website, gathers information about the dogs and cats, writes bios and submits them to the admins on NKWC’s Facebook pages.


Our organization is completely dependent on donations.  This committee assists in finding individual and business sponsors, researching and writing grants, and overseeing donor recognition.


Promote NKWC’s mission and recruit volunteers, fosters, adopters, and donors at special events throughout Williamson County.


Provide temporary care for cats or dogs in your home until they can be adopted.  You must be the owner/renter of the home and fill out a foster/volunteer form at Williamson County Animal Control. Please contact them at 615-790-5590 to find out how you can become a foster.

S.A.F.E. Team

As part of our Saving Animals From Euthanasia team you will provide training tips, home visits, networking advice, etc. to those who are contemplating surrendering their pet to Williamson County Animal Control . With the end goal being the animal remaining with the current owner or rehoming the animal without it entering the shelter system.


Take and post digital photos of adoptable animals for marketing materials.

Marketing/PR/Graphic Design

Help educate the public about NKWC and our mission via media relations, social media, and marketing campaigns.   Create a variety of promotional materials including brochures, ads, posters and flyers.

Contact Your Elected Officials
