Our vision is to provide youth members in our community with the best tools to create a brighter future for people and animals. Through our Humane Education programming, our hope is to help cultivate responsibility, compassion, and empathy and to increase their understanding of animal welfare and conservation.
Upcoming Kids Events
NEW! Animal Aces Kids’ Club!
The Animal Aces gives young people a unique opportunity to advocate for animals in their own community. This may be their first volunteering experience and hopefully fosters a lifetime of giving back and helping others. Projects may include making enrichment for the adoptable animals, assisting in our kibble kitchen, handing out treats to the animals, and learning about pet behavior and how to care for a variety of pets.
Our Aces will develop a sense of accomplishment when they see the results of their hard work and the satisfaction of knowing they are making a difference.
Membership for the 2024 season runs from January 1 – December 31, 2024. For ages 8 – 12 years old. Our kickoff season will be limited to the 1st 50 kids. Pre-register online now!
