Young Animal Lovers

No matter how young your child is, they can make a difference for homeless pets in need!

Although we require a minimum age of 16 to volunteer independently at the Arizona Humane Society, we have options for children as young as two years old to learn the value of volunteerism and make a positive impact for our pets.
