Kids Who Care

Come join us for a special Holiday Edition of our Kids Who Care Program! On December 1st children will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of entertaining, holiday-themed activities that will teach them the joy of being kind to animals. These interactive projects will benefit the animals of The Anti-Cruelty Society and allow children to receive hands-on experience with our shelter pets in fun and festive ways!

In the spirit of the holidays families are encouraged to bring a donation if they so wish to place under The Anti-Cruelty Society tree. To further spread some cheer families are also encouraged to get a little silly and come wearing festive holiday sweaters!

Some of our special holiday activities include:

  • Making a stocking sack of snacks for our small animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs
  • Creating a holiday themed adoption poster to post in your community to encourage people to take a new furry family member home for the holidays
  • Crafting presents for the cats and dogs in our care
  • Caroling to the animals
  • Taking photos of families interacting with our adoptable animals to be turned into ornaments
  • And more!

Come join us on this festive occasion and help out the animals of The Anti-Cruelty Society while having a sleigh full of fun!

Frequently asked questions:

  • My child is allergic to cats but still wants to take part. Is that possible?
    All of the activities in the Kids Who Care program can be tailored for each family depending on age, allergies, experience and comfort level. Simply email our staff coordinator after registering for an event so that we can have alternate activities available for you during your visit.
  • My child has peanut allergies. Are you a peanut-free facility?
    Though we do not use peanut butter in this particular program, the Anti-Cruelty Society is not a peanut-free facility as we utilize peanut butter throughout the building as an enrichment item for dogs in our care. Thus, participation of children with peanut allergies is at parental discretion.
  • How many children can you accommodate per family?
    We ask that there is an adult attendee available per child in your group to make the most of your experience. Contact our Community Programs Coordinator at education@anticruelty.org if you need to make a special accommodation.
  • My children’s aunt and babysitter are interested in attending in my place.
    Do you allow for people other than parents or guardians to attend?
    We welcome other adults to accompany your child to a Kids Who Care event, but require that a special waiver be completed first. To make special arrangements, please contact our Community Programs team directly at education@anticruelty.org.
