Humane Education Programs
At the ARLGP, we believe that in teaching our community kids at a young age to be responsible pet owners and advocates, we are ensuring animals will be humanely treated and cared for well into the future.
Please note that due to the increase of COVID-19 spread in our community, the majority of our humane education programming has been paused. For questions about our program or future offerings, please email email@example.com.
In-Shelter Programming For Kids:
Junior Volunteer Days at the ARLGP
Our junior volunteer days offer youth the opportunity to experience shelter life hands-on with activities and projects that support every aspect of the facility.
Junior Volunteer Days are offered on scheduled Saturday and Sunday mornings throughout the school year. Each session is designed for specific grade levels and meets 9am-noon. Volunteer time will include interaction with our adoptable animals and will be led by an ARLGP educator. Parents do not stay with their child during volunteer days.
- Cost for participation is $15 per volunteer, per session (snack will be provided).
- Masks are required for all volunteers until further notice.
Because of the increase in COVID-19 spread in our community, junior volunteer days will be placed on hold until further notice. Please check back for future 2021 junior volunteer dates/times.
Celebrate your birthday in the most fur-tastic way! ARLGP birthday parties include two hours of programming and festivities in our humane education classroom. Learn more about our current birthday party options >
The ARLGP hosts camps for kids throughout the school year, typically during the summer break and during school vacation/holiday weeks. Please check back for future camp schedule and offerings.
Girl Scout Program
Are you looking to earn your Pets Badge? Or your Daisy Petals? The ARLGP offers a workshop that will include a tour of the shelter as well as hands-on activities to talk about animal needs and animal welfare issues. After this program, scouts will have completed all aspects needed to complete your Girl Scout Badge.
If you are looking for something more unique for your scout group, then ask about our special Animal Advocates badge designed by Girls Scouts of Maine and the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland.
To register your scout group or get more info about our virtual program option, please contact our humane education department at firstname.lastname@example.org or (207) 517-3939.
