Small critters of the human kind help small critters of the animal kind!
The pAWSport promotes philanthropy at a young age, while also providing regular donations of much needed food and supplies for AWS’ small animals (birds, guinea pigs, rabbits, etc). This is geared towards children from preschool – middle school. The AWS Pawsport is sponsored by Infinity Federal Credit Union.
Students will be provided with a special passport with eight tasks to complete between October 1st and March 20th. There will be a celebratory Pizza with Pocket Pets for students who complete the passport on Friday evening, March 20th.
The eight tasks are:
- Donate fresh veggies to the small animals
- Donate timothy hay/shavings
- Read to a small animal at Rescue Readers
- Write a letter from a pet in the Adoption Center to its potential new family
- Visit a PetSmart or other pet store to count the number of small animals (and fill out the worksheet we'll provide)
- Color a picture of your favorite small animal
- Have a collection drive for toys/enrichments for small animals such as perches, chew toys or jingle balls
- Collect pocket change in a special piggy bank (provided)
Students can pick up their Pawsport packet and piggy bank on Tuesday or Thursdays after school (3:00 - 4:30 pm) in the Adoption Center Lobby or by appointment.
