Scout and Youth Projects

Click on the link above for illustrated instructions! Children enjoy watching and learning about animals. Often they wish they could do something to help them. The Pasadena Humane Society has a special youth project program to enable children to help our animals. With over 12,000 animals coming to our shelter each year we are faced with many decisions. The Pasadena Humane Society recognizes that animals need more then food, water, shelter and safety. They need activities. Students are invited to make simple toys and treats for the pets. Our trained volunteer staff will be sure each pet gets an appropriate toy.

Public Resource Research Library for Students
