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.

i-Foster

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 (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. 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
