Youth Outreach

We have long offered volunteer opportunities for individuals over the age of 13, but now we have some options for younger kiddos between the ages 6-12, and other ideas for kids even younger to help support our dogs and/or cats!  We have many ideas for you to reach out to your community, your school, friends and family to do some amazing things and help out in incredible ways until you are old enough to volunteer here with your parent starting at age 13!

 

Here are some ideas for you to help out from home!
  • Click to view our Wish List and invite family and friends to  a collection of supplies that we use every day for our dogs and cats to make sure they are healthy and safe!
  • Teach your friends and family about the importance of getting your pets spayed or neutered
  • Ask your teacher or principal if you can “dress down” for a day or have a hat day or school spirit day where everyone brings $.50 to donate toward our animals!
  • Ask your parents if you have any extra newspaper, sheets, blankets or towels that you could bring to Five Acres for our dogs or cats!
