New At-Home Project Guide coming soon!

We are currently revamping our At-Home Project Guide to give our volunteers fun, new crafts and projects to help pets. In the meantime, if you are interested in helping out in a unique way, please visit our Other Ways to Give page or reach out to our Development Office via email or at (207) 985-3244 ext 200.

The At-Home Project Guide includes enrichment activities and resources for our animals. Each project directly supports the health and welfare of the pets at AWS, bringing them joy, comfort and enrichment while they wait to be adopted. The listed projects offer varying levels of difficulty, skill and time commitment. Projects range from constructing a feral cat shelter to making no-bake dog treats and so much more. The best part about these projects – they are fun!

We welcome people of all ages to work on projects at home that help the animals. For students, this is an especially meaningful way to make a difference, by working together with friends, fellow Scouts or family members to work on projects. In most cases, students can deliver the projects directly to AWS’ animals so they can see first-hand how their support makes a difference.

We encourage all individuals seeking to complete their service hours to do so at home using our At-Home Project Guide as a resource. Don’t have community service hours to complete but still want to help the animals? We love to hear that! These projects create items and resources used by our pets every day.

For students, before beginning a project, feel free to check in with our Youth Program Coordinator at (207) 985-3244 ext. 109 or via email for information and encouragement.
