Volunteering for kids – Guatemala
Georgia’s Animal Rescue & No-Kill Shelter
Furkids is one of the only shelters in Georgia that welcomes children of all ages to volunteer in many different capacities. From dog washes to lemonade stands and garage sales, children can have an important impact on the day-to-day expenses of caring for the homeless animals in the Furkids program. Cat Shelter Caretaker in DoravilleChildren younger than 16 are welcome with a parent or guardian present. The Furkids shelter has about 200 cats living in a large, cage-free environment that feels more like a day-care center than an animal shelter. With its brightly colored rooms, cat trees and shelving systems, the shelter provides cats and visitors with a happy and comfortable experience.
In addition to cleaning the rooms, there is ample opportunity to engage with the cats by petting and playing with them and providing them with much needed human contact and TLC. Read to CatsThe Furkids Read to Cats program is designed for volunteers under 16 years old who have reading requirements or just like to read. The program helps children with their reading skills while also helping to socialize shelter cats.

Volunteer Alexandria’s youth and family volunteer program promotes civic responsibility and increases, facilitates and recognizes community service among young people. Volunteering as family, strengthens families and strengthens communities. Whether your family is one parent/guardian and one child or teen, or an extended family with grandparents, aunts, uncles, or cousins, families engaged in service can help mobilize thousands of new volunteers and instill a lifelong commitment to volunteering. Our goal is that all children and youth, ages 6 to 18, thrive and are engaged in their community! We create projects for volunteers as young as six years old.
