Want to visit the shelter? Request a Youth in Action program for your group!
Each participating group will complete a service project to benefit homeless pets in our community. This is a fun and engaging one-time program with a huge impact for kids who are unable to volunteer at the ARL regularly. Kids will work on a service project, receive a brief animal interaction, and take a tour of the shelter if time allows.
Service Project Options
- Making pet toys/beds
- Reading to adoptable pets
- Other projects based on supplies and current organizational needs
