The Pack is a new and unique program where participants in grades 7-9 will learn about animal welfare, the St. Paul community and how we can get more involved! We ask that participants either live in or have an association to the St. Paul area, specifically zip codes: 55103, 55104, 55105, 55108 and 55114. Registration is currently limited to 6 participants and we will be prioritizing those who live in this area.
Each week, we’ll explore a new topic focused on animals, our community, and ourselves. There will be time for guest speakers, games, service projects, and visits with animals. Plus, you’ll find ways to get more involved in your community so you can help people and animals and explore career options in animal welfare!
In this 16-week program you’ll learn about a variety of topics, including:
- Community outreach and advocacy
- Animal welfare and legislation
- Animal-related careers
- Exotic species
- and more!
Open to youth in grades 7-9. We will meet weekly, every Thursday, 4-6 PM, at our new St. Paul Vet Center (1159 University Ave. West, St. Paul).
- Session one (Fall/Winter): August 27 - December 17
- Session two (Winter/Spring): January-May, details coming soon
We ask that participants are able to attend the full 16 weeks of the program. There is no fee for The Pack, and you get a free T-shirt!
