Kids 8-11 will get periodic private invites to special small get-togethers if we have something special happening such as an opportunity to see baby kittens being fed by bottle or by mom, a movie outing, walking dogs to the park where they learn cautions about handling dogs in public situations (hands on learning I believe is the best) and more.  I can’t promise the number of outings or when but will add them onto Volgistics as we go forward.  The younger kids can also come to pet therapy at the local nursing home the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. and can help out at other events periodically.

Kids 12-18 will get periodic invites to things like joining me to go to the local shelter while I pick up an animal, help clean and organize in the office/orphanage, help with some of the animals at the orphanage, etc.  This would provide the older kids a deeper mentoring program.  This would be perfect for the child who wants to be a veterinarian, work in the animal field or just has a deep love for animals and is more mature and can handle more.  Kids can help out at adoption meet and greets and other events.


This year (2017-2018) will be our first year with the new structure.  If your child decides to join please be patient with me as we move forward and we tweak and try out different things to see how they work. Know I ALWAYS have the best interest of your children in mind and would love suggestions and input.
