Youth Programs

Willamette Humane Society is committed to educating youth about treating animals with kindness, compassion, and responsibility in a safe manner. Our programs empower youth to take action, help pets in their community, and understand the difference they can make.

Note: WHS prioritizes the safety of community members, employees, volunteers, and pets. Our youth programming is carefully planned around COVID-19 guidelines and some programs might currently be unavailable. Please check back for future updates.

Youth Service Opportunities

Participate in a service project. From coordinating a recycling drive to running a fundraiser, there are many ways that youth can help pets in our community. Collaborate with us, and your students can participate in an activity that directly helps shelter pets. Find out what shelter animals currently need at our wishlist
