She will bring a different live animal friend from the shelter with her each month, such as dogs, cats, rabbits, and more.

Club members will receive a passport that will be stamped when they complete service projects. At the end of the year, the passports can be traded in a for a special prize.

The club meets once a month, usually on the last Thursday of the month from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.  It is not necessary for club members to attend every meeting, however we do require advance registration for each meeting a student plans on attending so we can make sure we have enough resources for all participants.
