PLEASE NOTE: In light of the evolving COVID-19 situation and the statewide shelter-in-place order, all ARF Youth Programs are suspended at this time. This page will be updated when programs resume.
ARF offers a variety of programs for youth to get involved and earn community service hours along the way.
- Junior Volunteer Club: A six week service-learning program for middle schoolers who want to learn all about animal welfare and make a difference for ARF's animals.
- Junior Counselor Program: Join the team at our award winning Camp ARF! This is a great way for teens to earn community service hours and gain valuable experience working with children and animals in an educational environment.
Please read our Junior Counselor Info Sheet. Junior Counselor applications are closed due to cancellation of the 2020 Camp ARF sessions.
- Teen Leadership Program: A hands-on program designed for dedicated animal lovers who are looking to further their knowledge of the animal welfare industry and become advocates at ARF and beyond.
- Community Service: An easy to follow guide full of opportunities to support ARF and earn community service hours by completing projects to benefit animals.
- Foster Program: Fostering is a wonderful opportunity to volunteer together as a family and care for a pet without a long-term commitment. Get started with an orientation for cats, dogs, or both!
