Multiple times a week, every week, SVAS Volunteers take shelter pets to assisted living facilities, nursing homes, the Domestic Violence Crisis Center, or the YWCA Minot as part of our Pet Therapy program. Volunteers and pets visit with residents for about an hour each visit, brightening everybody’s day. Want to get involved? SVAS has many openings every month in the Pet Therapy schedule; email to find out what slots are available and for more information.

Every 2nd Thursday from 6-7, the Souris Valley Animal Shelter offers children of all ages a chance to read their homework or their favorite book to a pet who would love a chance to listen. No sign-up or payment necessary. Simply come and read to the pets in our care.
