Service Saturdays

Calling all teens!

The Wisconsin Humane Society Milwaukee Campus hosts Service Saturdays for young people ages 12 to 18! Participants assist with hands-on service projects such as creating enrichment toys for the animals, helping to keep the shelter grounds looking their best, and more. Service Saturdays can help fulfill school or club community service requirements, as well. Each three-hour session includes a tour of the shelter, a chance to meet an animal, and a snack. In 2020, Service Saturdays will be held on February 22, May 2, and November 14. Click on a date to learn more and sign up!
