Youth Volunteer Opportunities
While our age requirement is 17 to volunteer on campus there are opportunities available for those under 17.
iFoster: Ages 8-17
This program allows youth volunteers to take on a foster animal (likely a kitten but sometimes cats, puppies and dogs) until they’re old enough to be processed into the shelter system with the supervision of an adult guardian.
Ages 15 and older. Pull together friends, teammates, classmates etc. and visit the campus to do some project work (cleaning, scrubbing, yard work etc.) This is a great way to help the shelter and work as a team.
Learn more about our Project Group Program.
Walk for the Animals
Any age. Youths can create a ‘pack’ for the Walk for the Animals each March and help fundraise and create awareness for the event and the shelter animals.
Any age. Advocating the work the League does is always helpful. Youths who are active on social media can 'like' us on Facebook and share our messages. They can also view our adoptable animal lists and promote their favorite shelter animals.

Wishlist Collections: Ages 10-17
Youths can help by viewing our wish list and setting up collection efforts for these much needed items with their girl/boy scout troops, teammates, classmates, neighbors or church groups and deliver them to the shelter. In order to collect community service hours for school - students should provide timelines, project planning notes and photos and submit these documents to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to scheduling a tour and having paperwork signed. Parents and students are encouraged to consult with their school PRIOR TO developing a collection effort to guarantee their hours will be accepted by the school.
The program that accepted donations in exchange for community service hours is no longer available at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. This applies to all schools systems (elementary and middle schools, high schools and home schools both public and private).
