Service Days – Group volunteer activity at the shelter (3 hours in the morning assisting with cleaning, laundry and other tasks before animal snuggles).
Adoption Events, Puppy/Kitten Parties, Kitten Yoga, Off-Site Service Projects, etc. – Off-site events with puppies, kittens and/or dogs. These events help raise awareness, help our furry friends find homes and give our animals great human interaction time.
Donation Drives – Supplies are always needed to keep the shelter operating. AHS can share a list of needed supplies for your team to collect for our animals.
Impact: Every donation event, project, volunteer group helps us raise life-saving funds, so we can continue to serve over 11,000 cats and dogs each year.
