Summer Shelter Squad

Summer Shelter Squad 2024

Children in rising grades 3-8 are invited to be a part of our 2024 Summer Shelter Squad this August!

Shelter Squad participants will engage in various service projects directly benefiting the pets at JHS and have the opportunity to meet and interact with a JHS dog and kittens (depends on the availability of suitable animals).

Service projects may include:

  • creating enrichment items for the pets such as dog and cat treats, food puzzles, cat toys, and more
  • making heating pads for neonatal kittens and surgery patients
  • folding laundry
  • helping the JHS Animal Care team get our Adoption Center ready for the day (may include light cleaning tasks)
  • reading to the pets to help them feel more relaxed in their kennels

Shelter Squad members will be awarded 3 community service hours at the end of each day. Children who complete all 3 days of the program will earn a total of 9 community service hours.

Dates: August 6-8, 2024 (choose one day or all three)
Cost: $45 per day
Time: 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
