High School Service Day
High school students in grades 9-12 are invited to join us on Saturday, February 4, for a day of learning and service at the Jacksonville Humane Society!
Participants will learn about animal sheltering, what dogs and cats go through while living in a shelter environment, and how we can help make their stay as happy, healthy, and stress-free as possible.
Service projects may include:
– creating enrichment items for the pets such as dog treats, food puzzles, cat toys, and more
– stuffing envelopes with thank you letters to donors
– making heating pads for neonatal kittens and surgery patients
– folding laundry
– reading to the pets to help them feel more relaxed in their kennels
In addition to completing a variety of service projects, participants will have the opportunity to meet and interact with a JHS dog and JHS kittens or cats.
All participants will be awarded 4 community service hours at the end of the day.
