Volunteer at the Animal Humane Society

Volunteers must be at least 16 years old. For younger kids, the AHS recommends becoming involved in their educational programs or camps, joining their youth club or fostering as a family.

They also offer Project Purpose workshops which give kids between the ages of 12-15 seasonal service projects. These workshops cost $40 and do not offer significant animal contact.

Kids 6+ can also participate in Rescue Readers. Read more about that program here.
