Youth Heroes

The Animal Welfare Society graciously thanks amazing youth supporters for their kindness, compassion and generosity. You are heroes to our animals!

Girl Scout Troop 1573

We recently had a visit from the Girl Scouts Troop 1573! The young ladies set up a donation drive in their school and collected food, treats, toys, beds, and blankets for the animals. They also filled a basket with felt toys they made themselves. Some were fleece rope toys for dogs, others were cat nip stuffed for the cats. Thanks for all your hard work girls!

York Middle School Kindness Project

Put your paws together to applaud Olivia, Bryleigh, and Kristen from York Middle School. They chose AWS for their Kindness Project. They got approval from their principal to go on the announcements at school to let people know about their donation drive and AWS. The York Middle School Community was very generous. Thank you all so much!


Meet Awesome Isaak. He recently had a birthday and asked his friends to bring gifts for the animals in lieu of gifts for himself. The treats he brought to AWS were especially popular with our cats and dogs. Isaak’s love for animals is readily apparent and we think maybe he’ll have a career in animal welfare someday (if the NHL doesn’t work out, of course!) Thanks, Isaak, for your generosity and kindness to our animals! Smokey, Derusha, Snowbell and all our pets had a great time meeting you! Thank you for visiting the wonderful world of AWS!

Mildred L. Day School

We are very grateful to the generous students and faculty of the Mildred L. Day School.  Every year they have a donation drive for the local food pantry and the Animal Welfare Society.  And every year we are amazed at the size of the contribution.  This year they amassed over 360 bags and cans of cat and dog food. Thanks for your continued support!
