Youth Events


Children in third, fourth and fifth grades (and 6th and 7th during the summer at our Summer Career Camp) can come explore the amazing world of animals in these one-day and week-long camps! Our goal is to teach children about compassion and respect for the world around them. By giving kids a rewarding experience learning about animals and animal welfare, we will provide them with lessons to help them make responsible decisions regarding the animals and people in their lives.

Please sign each child up for only one summer session, as we want to provide this experience for as many campers as possible.

If you need financial assistance, please email Lauren Pipis at before registering.

Junior Volunteer Club

Junior Volunteer Club meets once a month for 5 months and is an opportunity for 12-15 year olds to gain hands on experience volunteering at the Dumb Friends League. This is a great way to meet a community service goal or simply just to help the homeless pets in our care. Students will work alongside adult volunteers cleaning animal enclosures and working with cats, dogs, and small mammals.
