At-Home Youth Volunteer Opportunities

Looking for more ways to get involved? Help us provide comfort and entertain the many animals in our care by completing a volunteer activity at home! Include your neighbors and classmates as well!

  • Host a supply drive.  Schools, teams, and organizations are welcome to host supply drives for Pet Helpers using our Amazon and Chewy Wish Lists!  Items can be sent directly to our shelter (make sure to include a gift receipt), or can be donated in bulk at the shelter! Make sure to create your own marketing materials!  Create a social media post to reach more donors and tag us in your efforts!

  • Go on a scavenger hunt. Many items on our wish lists may be found right under your own roof! We accept gently worn towels and blankets, unopened cat and dog food, and unopened jars of creamy peanut butter and canned pumpkin!

  • Create an enrichment toy! Check out our enrichment gallery and make it at home! Gather supplies, invite your friends and enjoy giving back to the animals in need!

  • Read to cats. Check out our Furry Tales program! Enjoy reading and socializing with some furry feline friends.
