Service Hours for Students

The Idaho Humane Society’s Humane Education program offers an opportunity for junior high and high school students to volunteer and help fulfill service learning hours. Students will work on projects to help shelter pets. There is a $5 fee to offset the cost of the projects and registration is required. Each session has a capacity of 10 students and will be held from 4pm-6pm. Sessions are held in the Education Classroom at our S. Bird Campus.

2020 Service Dates:

Coming soon!

Please contact our Humane Education Coordinator with any questions at [email protected] Unfortunately, due to the nature of these sessions, payment is nonrefundable. If the form is unavailable, that means the session is full.

If you are unable to make one of the monthly short-term volunteer sessions, there are other ways you can help the animals:  

  • Fundraising! Organize a virtual event to raise money for the animals in our shelter.
  • Help fill our Pet Food Pantry cupboards! Organize a pet food drive to collect dog and cat food and kitty litter to donate to our Pet Food Pantry. The pantry supplies pet food to individuals who cannot afford it as well as to senior citizens who have trouble getting to the store.
  • Recycle! Collect newspapers for the Idaho Humane Society to reuse as liners for our kitty cages. Or collect aluminum cans and drop them into our aluminum can collection cages at the shelter or at area Zamzows stores. We turn the cans in for money to help care for the homeless animals in our shelter.
  • Make blankets for our kitties! Our cats and kittens love to lie on handmade blankets. You can knit, crochet or tie blankets out of fleece. They need to measure about 18-20” x 18-20” when you’re finished. Bring them to the shelter and then visit our shelter kitties!

We’ll be happy to give you a receipt for your donations for you to give to your teacher!
