PAWS is people helping cats, dogs and wild animals go home and thrive – whether home is the family room or the forest. We do this by rehabilitating orphaned and injured wildlife, sheltering and adopting homeless cats and dogs, and educating the community to inspire compassionate action for animals.
Currently, there are no volunteering opportunities for students under the age of 16 in person. However, they do have a variety of youth project ideas to help PAWS animals. They are especially in need of rope toys and cardboard cat scratchers. You can find more about those on our website under youth projects.
The pre-teen education program takes place during the summer, but our Heroic Animal Helpers program is a single in person workshop geared towards youth aged 11-13. In this program, participants learn how we can help animals and how animals help us!
Completing a service project is a great way to support the lifesaving work at PAWS while empowering kids to make a difference and fostering their natural compassion for animals. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in completing a youth project and we can discuss how we may be able to support you. Students under the age of 16 may not volunteer directly with the animals.
