Compassionate Kids Corps


In an abundance of caution, all in-person Humane Education programs have been suspended until further notice. 

Now in its 2nd year, our Compassionate Kids Corps program is for children ages 8-13. This structured and supervised volunteer group meets on Thursdays

Spring applications ended 1/22/20 and sessions are full.  Information and the application for our Fall Session will be available mid-August.

This program is focused on teaching kids about commitment, hard work and dedication, and is intended for children who want to learn, help, and don’t mind getting their hands dirty. Make new friends while making a difference!

Compassionate Kids learn about animal welfare as they help us help our animals with hands-on volunteering including:

  • washing animal care dishes
  • washing, drying, and folding laundry
  • cleaning
  • making enrichment items
  • supply inventory organization
  • occasional cat and dog socializing

All to help the animals and staff at the Pet Rescue & Resource Center.

Spaces are limited for this unique volunteer group (maximum of 10 per session). All children and parents must attend training and sign liability & release waivers to participate. After training, kids attend without parents, supervised by our staff and volunteers. There is a one time $25 membership fee.

The Compassionate Kids Corps nurtures children’s desire to help. For more information, email
