After-School Clubs

Do you have a student who is an animal lover, advocate and friend? Our after-school clubs are designed to give students a deeper connection to the animal welfare world, sheltering in our community, responsible pet care and more.

About our clubs:

  • Each club meets one afternoon a month
  • Each meeting is an hour and a half, with a maximum amount of 15 students per club
  • All clubs include time with our adoptable animals
