School Break Programs
Thanks for a fun-filled summer! We will release next year’s summer camp schedule in March 2024 and registration will begin in April.
Information about winter break workshops for Kids and Young Teens will be available in September.
Earn Service Hours Summer is a great time to rack up service hours to meet school requirements and show the pets you care!
You can organize a drive to gather donations of pet food, supplies, toys and cat litter. We distribute these to low-income pet owners, seniors, and pet owners living with HIV/AIDS or cancer. Consider distributing
Kindness Cards to make an impact in your community. You might find that pets need help in your very own neighborhood.
You can also help raise money for pets by holding bake sales, yard sales, craft sales, participate in walk-a-thons, and much more! Feel free to use your imagination to come up with a fundraising idea. Our online fundraising website People Helping Pets can also help you collect donations at your event. Learn more about
hosting a fundraiser!

We are excited to welcome scouts to our shelter to earn their animal-themed badges, awards, and electives! Programs include a lesson and activities specific to scouting levels and are for troops/dens of 5-12 scouts. For example, we offer workshops for the Brownie Pet Needs badge, Junior Animals Habitats badge, STEM Career Exploration badges for all scouting levels, Cub Scout Bear Elective Critter Care Adventure and more!
Workshops can be scheduled on Tuesdays and Fridays during our Adoption hours, 12 – 6 p.m. For Daisies and Cub Scouts, there is a fee of $10/participant which includes a Seattle Humane fun patch! For other Girl Scout levels, there is a fee of $12/scout which includes a fun patch and the Girl Scout badge. For specific program details, questions and to schedule a workshop, please email
