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 in the February Pet Therapy schedule; email Justin at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out what slots are available and for more information.
Every Tuesday from 6-7, the Souris Valley Animal Shelter offers children in grades K-6 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.
Did you know that domestic violence and animal welfare are often related?
