Superhero Sunday

Opportunities

NEW! Superhero Sundays!

From 1:30-3:30pm on the first Sunday of every month, we will be hosting a new volunteer opportunity geared toward the youth of our community, but as always adults are welcome.  

Superhero Sunday is held the first Sunday of every month.  No registration is necessary and there is no fee, but donations for supplies are welcome. 

Kids can simply show up to help with various projects and tasks without having to register. Parents: PLEASE do NOT drop your child(ren) off at the shelter. You must come in to sign a waiver or we will not be able to allow your child to volunteer. Additionally, all children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the duration of time that they are participating in Superhero Sundays.

PLEASE NO GROUPS: we prefer groups to go through our formal group volunteer sessions.

Projects include:

  • Reading
  • Counting change from donations they are encouraged to collect/bring in
  • Gardening
  • Making fleece blankets and kits
  • Making dog and cat treats
  • Making dog and cat toys
  • Trail maintenance and cleanup
  • Housekeeping tasks (laundry, dishes, cleaning)
  • Projects for shelter decorations or general store items
  • Rock painting
  • Barn animal enrichment

The purpose of this program is to:

1– better serve our community (so many want to volunteer but can’t make a long term commitment)
2– target the youth volunteers that our current opportunities or education programs cannot accommodate
3– allow for a more open, easy way for kids to volunteer here at the shelter
