We're Thankful for You!
Young people and their families are amazing animal supporters. Thank you for learning with us, organizing service projects, and most importantly– loving the pets! We hope to see you at an upcoming program soon.
Thursday, December 29, 8:30am-3:30pm: Kids workshops for youth in grades 2-4. Learn about pets at the shelter, meet a few furry friends, and work on winter-themed crafts and activities. Register here.
Earn Service Hours Need community service hours for school? We can help with that!
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!

In-person workshops are back for Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts!
We are excited to welcome scouts back to our shelter to earn their animal-themed badges, awards, and electives. Workshops include activities and lessons specific to scouting levels and are for troops/dens of 5-12 scouts.
Programs will take place in one of our large classroom spaces. At present, we cannot accommodate behind-the-scenes tours. While our adoption areas are open to the public, we will not be visiting these areas as a group during our program.
Workshops can be scheduled on Tuesdays and Fridays during our Adoption hours, 12 – 6 p.m. For specific program details and to schedule a workshop, please email
or call (425) 641-0080. [email protected]

During the school year, members meet two Saturdays per month to learn about operations at Seattle Humane and explore a variety of animal welfare related topics. Upon completion of the program, graduates are eligible for select volunteer positions at Seattle Humane, including special summer opportunities.
The application window has closed for 2022. Please check back in May 2023!
