Service projects

Is your group looking for a fun community service project? Why not gather the animal-loving troops and conduct a project that benefits Animal Humane Society? We can help you get started with project ideas and tips. Unfortunately, there is high demand for meeting space at the Animal Humane Society so we are unable to accommodate additional time for your scout meetings.

Please note that we do not have any opportunities for short-term volunteering at our shelters. Learn more about our volunteer program.
