Mini Paws, our program for boys and girls 4-18, is designed to train our junior volunteers in proper animal care and instill a love of community service. Through monthly meetings our Mini Paws are educated about responsible pet ownership by learning the importance of proper veterinary care, grooming & dog handling. They’re also given the skills to feel confident in public speaking, the opportunity to participate in peer-to-peer educational programs, and encouraged put their new found leadership skills to use by developing and/or leading community projects of their own. Some of them even foster our available dogs in their own homes.
In addition to fundraising for our own rescue, they also work to help raise funds for other charities and organizations. They are an amazing group of young ladies and gentlemen! If there's a child in your family interested in a fun volunteering opportunity, please consider submitting a volunteer application.
