Crafting Crew Group Volunteer Program

If you’re looking for a one-off on-site volunteer opportunity with the Society, consider signing your team up to become a Crafting Crew!

Our group volunteer sessions enable your team to help shelter animals in a practical way by crafting enrichment projects using common everyday materials. These finished items go a long way in making sure the critters remain happy, healthy, and comfortable while they’re in our care.

Participating groups will see an introductory presentation about The Anti-Cruelty Society, get an animal interaction and receive a behind-the-scenes tour of our facilities. We also encourage groups to bring in food (or have it catered) and enjoy music or a movie of their choice while they work.

Crafting Projects
Below is the current list of enrichment projects approved for use in our shelter. Your group can choose to do just one or all of these (or any combination in between) during your Crafting Crew session.

Cat Wands
Cork Toys
Kitty Sachets
Dog Tug Toys
No-Sew Beds

Scheduling a Session
We recommend that you schedule your session at least one month in advance, giving you time to plan and collect supplies for the crafts. Groups can be scheduled Monday – Saturday from either 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. or 1:00–4:00 p.m. Each group must have at least 10 participants; the max number of participants for this program is set at 30 people.

We ask for a $150 donation for groups to participate in a Crafting Crew session. Please notify us within 48 hours of your chosen event date should you no longer be able to attend.
