Friday

As we near the end of Spring Break, we’ll take look at how you can “spring” a pet from the shelter for a break! Our Foster Friends program is designed for youth in grades 6 through 12 who volunteer – with their guardian’s permission – to provide temporary housing for animals who aren’t ready to be adopted.

Saturday

9:00 a.m. – Story time en Español! We’re excited to include a reading in Spanish with animal introductions and an activity.
