Kids PYPer (Parent & Youth Partnership) Volunteer Program

Kids Volunteer Program

Kids between the ages of 8-12 can participate in cat and dog kennel activities or Paw Partners with their parent or guardian. Our Parent-Youth-Partner Program (PYPer) teaches children the importance of treating animals humanely and will prepare them for the responsibility of owning a pet, while allowing them to work side-by-side with a parent or guardian. Questions? Scroll down to read more about our program or visit the Volunteer FAQ page here. Otherwise, follow the steps below to get started.

Youth ages 13-17 can also participate in our VolunTeen Program as well as our   Teen Advocacy Volunteer Club, TAILS (Teen Animal Inspired Leadership Society).
