Teen Service Day

Hello future volunteers!

Are you a high school student looking to gain volunteer service hours for school? Then sign up for our Teen Service Sunday to complete five volunteer hours by helping the animals in our shelter! The service day will consist of learning about how the shelter runs, service projects such as cleaning and creating enrichments, as well as an introduction to animal behavior and dedicated time to socialize with our shelter animals.

The day will include a pizza lunch. Please make sure to include any dietary needs in the sign-up form.

We ask that participants donate $10 to cover the cost of supplies or bring two items from the enrichment supplies list. Following completion of the day of service, participants will be sent a certificate confirming their volunteer hours. For specific school forms or letters, please email volunteer@laspca.org.

The service day will take place on Sunday, October 16th from 10:00am to 3:00pm at 1700 Mardi Gras Boulevard, New Orleans, LA 70114.
