PAWS Academy After-school Club

Our PAWS Academy After-school Club meets weekly at Cache Humane Society throughout the school year.  Participants learn how to responsibly interact with animals, are introduced to opportunities and careers in animal welfare, and make fun arts and crafts.  

Our Paws Academy participants also help our team find loving homes for animals by assistant with training, socialization, and volunteer tasks around the shelter.
