Special Youth Events


Snuffle Mat Marathon

Bring comfort and joy to a shelter animal this holiday season! For the month of December, we challenge your children to make as many snuffle mats as they can to give back to our animals. We use these mats to provide brain stimulation & entertainment for our animals!  We will be kicking off this event on December 5th by hosting a 1 hour Zoom workshop where your kids can learn how to make a snuffle mat & meet some of our shelter animals. Whoever makes the most snuffle mats will win a VIP tour of our shelter.  Click here to register!
