Each workshop includes a behind-the-scenes shelter tour, interaction with a Pet Hug Pack therapy animal, and age-appropriate activities. While our workshops meet most or all badge requirements at each Scout level, ARF does not provide official Scout badges. An ARF fun patch is available for $2 per participant.

Girl Scouts

Daisies – Animal Journey
Daisies explore the fundamentals of pet guardianship during this 75-minute tour.  Through activities in our mock vet clinic, pet supply store and Walk in my Paws® living room, Daisies learn about dog safety, how animals communicate and the proper way to greet an animal.  

Brownies – Pets Badge
Brownies focus on the responsibilities of pet guardianship and care. Scouts consider what animals need to stay healthy and happy and how to choose a pet that’s right for them. An exploration of animal senses provides a fun way to foster compassion and respect. 75 minutes.

Juniors – Agent of Change
Juniors “take action” by putting their passion for animals to work.   Scouts undertake a service learning project that benefits the shelter or animals in need.  From creating enrichment items to promoting adoptions, Juniors discover the value of community service in the shelter setting. 90 minutes.   

Cadettes – Animal Helpers Badge
Cadettes explore the bond between humans and animals and the role animals play in enriching our lives.  Scouts examine the senses that allow cats and dogs to identify disease, help people with disabilities and provide emotional support.  Guest speakers include therapy and service animal handlers. 90 minutes.

Boy Scouts & Youth Organizations
ARF's 90 minute workshops can be customized to meet your group’s needs.  Our programs meet most or all badge requirements for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts, including Pet Elective, Pet Care Belt Loop, Pets Merit Badge and Dog Care Merit Badge. Please inquire for details. 

Tours are offered Tuesday-Friday (latest start time 4 pm). Fees are $10 per child; patches are an additional $2 fee. There is a minimum charge of $100. Chaperones are free, but participating siblings will be charged.
