We're so lucky to have donors and supporters of all ages. It's never too early to start helping the animals of the Humane Society of Boulder Valley. There are so many ways to help; below are just a few ideas:
Bake Sale: Hold a bake sale with people food and animal food or open a lemonade stand.
Toys: Make cat and dog toys and sell them at your school.
Hold a pet food and supply drive at your school: Make posters announcing when the drive will be held, how food will be collected, and who will benefit from the event. Once a week, have members from the class take a decorated wagon arund to pick up donations. Have students make a graph of their progress and announce final results to the whole school. This project can also be done with a neighborhood or church group or scouting troop. Click here to see our wish list.
Do a penny drive for pets: Put a container in your classroom and ask your friends and classmates to bring in their pennies. Pennies really do add up!
Rummage Sale: Have your classmates and friends donate items to hold a rummage sale or bring those items to the Humane Society of Boulder Valley Thrift and Gift Shop, 5320 Arapahoe Avenue, Boulder.
Walk neighborhood dogs for donations: Make sure to have your parents' permission and supervision.
Attend any (or all!) of our Humane Education Camps and events for youth: Click here for more information about programs for kids 6 to 12 years of age at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley.
