WHS & Student Communities

WHS believes that teaching young people about animal care and involving them in volunteering and service projects will help to create a more compassionate and kind society for the future. Students who participate in hands-on learning activities with WHS get a first-hand idea of what it is we do at the shelter, but more importantly, how they can make a difference!

The Humane Education department here at WHS works closely with schools, student groups & clubs, Girl Scouts & Eagle Scouts, and individuals looking to help!
We are so grateful for all of the students who have attended WHS Humane Ed programs, read to our animals through Story Tails, raised money through Pennies4Paws,
facilitated donation drives, created persuasive essays and flyers, made treats for our animals and MUCH more!

Check out just a few of the MANY wonderful things that student communities have been involved with below:

We work closely with Albert Schweitzer Elementary School, who provides us with persuasive adoption letters each year PLUS donations!
Thank you AS El Ed!

Two of our Story Tails readers, Brynn and Lindsey, facilitated donation drives around the holidays and managed to get LOTS of great things
