Kindergarten through 7th

2 classes

Is there an opportunity for community service?

Yes – Students will earn approximately 5 community service hours


In PR for Pets, students will help the shelter by promoting our adoptable animals, special events and the many services we provide the community! You’re never too young to help spread the word and put your creative talents to work!


After learning about our animals, services and special events, students will be given the choice of creating a media campaign around their chosen animal(s), event or service. Thank you for submitting only final, edited projects upon completion of the campaign!

Campaigns can consist of creating:

  • “Adopt Me” posters and signs to hang in windows of local businesses
  • “Pet of the Week” ad for the local paper
  • Instagram/Facebook “takeover” photos.
  • Posters to promote special events
  • Public awareness campaign promoting the importance of Pet Tags
