Animal Education/Anti-Bully Program – Bobbi and Staff along with 1-2 dogs visit schools and libraries throughout the year to educate children on proper animal care, the importance of loving them, of respecting all Life, animal cruelty, and the spay/neuter program. Discussion between the similarities of animal abuse and bullying is included in an attempt to help stop the large scale of bullying that children are being exposed to these days. TEACHERS, PARENTS, AND KIDS LOVE IT


This program is also available on-site to Boy/Girl Scouts and to any group that is interested.

Youth Services

We accommodate the youth by giving of our time to teach, train, educate, oversee, and evaluate for their schools and/or programs that they are attending, in all of the following services.

Students can complete community service hours for school credits.

Students can come to our shelter to complete animal related school projects.

High School students can come to our shelter to get firsthand experience before deciding if an animal related career is a good fit.


College students can complete internships for animal related careers and/or any area of a career that falls within animal shelter work, i.e. marketing, film, photography, etc., as well as complete college projects.

Let’s help all kids learn the importance of loving animals, respecting all LIFE, and to respect and care for one another. Kids who know the meaning of KINDNESS and CARE. AFTER ALL THEY ARE THE FUTURE.
