Community Engagement Programs
The SVAS doesn’t only provide services to animals.
We engage in other community activities such as Read to the Animals, Pet Therapy, and Emergency Housing.
Read to the animals
Promotes confidence in literacy for children and adults by allowing individuals to read to an animal of their choice on a weekly basis.
Promotes companionship to the most vulnerable citizens in Minot by taking pets to facilities such as nursing homes, domestic violence centers, the YWCA, and homeless shelters throughout the community.
Allows SVAS to provide care and shelter for animals whose owner is fleeing a domestic violence situation, or a situation in which homelessness is the result of unforeseen circumstances.
