How Kids & Teens Help

Young Volunteers
Because of staffing concerns and safety issues, we are unable to offer volunteer positions to people under age 18. However, there are many ways for you to help the animals!

Sign Up for Humane Teen Club (Teens 13-17)
A selected group of teens age 13-17 can volunteer time as a Humane Teen Club member. Learn more about this program.

Host a Pet Food Drive
Donations of pet food, supplies, toys and cat litter are always appreciated. Many of these items are distributed to low-income senior pet owners and pet owners living with AIDS or cancer.
