No matter your age or interests, you can change pets’ lives. And kids, these ideas are for you!
- Join CHS’ Pet Lovers Club! Meetings are virtual once a month and start Tuesday, Feb. 23. The Pet Lovers Club combines topics from CHS’ pet programs and the interests of members to create interactive programs about companion animals. Each session is tailored to the specific interests of members and includes an activity, pet program, and discussion time.
- Bring a CHS program to your class, library, or community group virtually. CHS offers a number of unique and engaging programs for kids interested in pets. See the list of programs here.
- Bring a CHS program to your Scout group. There are patches specifically tailored toward troops interested in learning about pets. See the list of programs here.
- Organize a donation drive for the pets. They always need food, toys, cat litter, treats and more! You could hold a collection for your birthday and ask friends and family to donate. Or, maybe your school or Scout troop wants to hold a collection with you! Learn how here.
- Hold an event, like a bake sale or lemonade stand. A grown-up in your life can help you make it happen. Get started.
- Put your crafting skills to work for the pets. Check out a list of project ideas. For example, bandannas help the pups look their very best when they meet new families, and cats love to dig on cardboard scratchers.
- Join CHS’ Lemonade Stand Challenge each summer. When you hold your stand and collect donations for the pets, a local business will match your donation! That means twice as many purrs and tail wags. Learn more.
- Looking for a way to work with CHS pets? Volunteers in CHS buildings need to be 18 years old and up. But if your family fosters pets in your home, everyone can help out! Pets get foster homes when they aren’t yet ready for adoption, but want a comfy, quiet place to stay in the meantime. Apply to be a foster home here.
