An Exciting Extension of our Volunteer Youth Program

A Tail-Wagging Journey into Animal Welfare

The Critter Club: Youth in Action

Welcome to The Critter Club, an exciting extension of our current Volunteer Youth Program! Designed for young animal enthusiasts aged 10-13, this club offers an immersive and educational experience for youth volunteers who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of shelter pets.

Your commitment to animals is appreciated

What is the Youth Volunteer Program?

Please note: The Youth Volunteer Program is different from The Critter Club. You must complete the orientation in the Youth Volunteer Program to participate in the The Critter Club.

  • Youth must attend an orientation with a parent/guardian.
  • Become a Youth Volunteer to participate in The Critter Club.
  • Youth must commit to a minimum of 1 hour a month for a minimum of 3 months with their parent/guardian.
  • Tasks include working with in-shelter cats & kittens, laundry, and various tasks.
  • Support from a parent or guardian is required.

Sign up to be a youth volunteer! – Your support helps our cats & kittens in shelter to become confident with people and gain the skills that will help them adjust to their fur-ever homes! 

Fostering Leadership and Learning at The Critter Club

Youth Empowerment

  • Prerequisite is taking the Youth Volunteer Program orientation
