Kids Can Help Shelter Pets, Too

While our volunteer program is designed for individuals 17 years of age and older, children under 17 can still make a difference in the lives of our shelter pets by:

  • Making cat and dog toys.
  • Constructing felt pet blankets.
  • Collecting items listed on our wish list.
  • Organizing a supply drive with your family and friends
  • Making pet treats.
  • Reading to our shelter pets during our regularly scheduled reading hours.
  • Enrolling in our youth internship program.
