Groups meet in Woodbury (Tuesday) and Golden Valley (Wednesday).
Pet Set groups will start again in September.
The PetSet Youth Club is perfect for youth in grades 5-7 who want to learn about animal welfare issues while developing leadership and community service skills. PetSet offers a fun, comprehensive program that meets twice a month.
PetSet is a service learning program. This enhanced form of community service ensures that youth play an active role in choosing, developing, implementing, and evaluating the work they do for their communities.
PetSet activities are focused on these areas:
Leadership: Gaining new understanding through discussion with experts, researching issues, and sharing with other members
Community Service: Creating member-led projects that benefit animals in our communities
Advocacy: Building public awareness and learning about how the legislative process can impact animals
Registration for one semester is $75. New members are welcome any time! (Members joining after the first meeting will pay a prorated registration fee.)
Please note: PetSet is not a “junior volunteer” program. While some animal time will be included in most club meetings, participants should not expect to spend significant time with animals waiting for adoption. Animal time may also include meeting and learning about non-shelter animals, such as service dogs or therapy animals. View a sample of PetSet activities to see more of what this group can do!
