The Education Department at Peggy Adams has several ways for you to earn service hours and gain awesome experience. With both on-campus and off-campus opportunities, you are sure the find the right fit for your service hours.


On-Campus Opportunities


Rescue Readers 

Whether your children are too young to volunteer on campus and looking for service hours, or you’re looking for a new way to engage your kids, reading to shelter animals is a perfect fit. Not only are the children able to develop their reading skills and boost self-esteem in front of a non-judgmental audience, but it also provides valuable socialization and love to the shelter animals. Learn more about the Rescue Readers program here


Off-Campus Opportunities



Try This!

Earn service hours from the comfort of your own home by crafting toys for the shelter's cats and dogs! Choose from a variety of DIY projects to complete at home and drop off at our campus. These toys help animals beat boredom in the shelter and keep their minds healthy and happy.  For more information and to get started crafting, view our project booklet here

The iFoster program is available to kids between the ages of 8 years old and 17 years old. This is an opportunity for the youth to accrue community service hours while also helping the community and animals in need. This program allows youth volunteers to take on a foster animal until they’re old enough to be processed into the shelter system with the supervision of an adult guardian. iFoster volunteers accrue 2 hours per day for each foster animal. Proof of hours will be awarded once you’ve finished fostering and the animal(s) return to the shelter. Learn more about the iFoster program and register to foster here
