PAWS Preteen Workshop helps kids learn how to care for animals

Lynnwood’s Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) is hosting preteen pop-up workshops every Thursday until August 25.

PAWS Preteen Workshops are a community of preteens aged 9-12 dedicated to improving the lives of animals both at the animal shelter and in the community. At these events, attendees will develop a deeper understanding of animal welfare, complete community service projects, learn from guest speakers and foster their leadership skills.

Workshops consist of a combination of structured instruction time, guest speaker visits, group activities and projects. Register for one, two, or all of the workshops.

Topics vary each week. The workshop on July 7 will focus on shelter operations.

The event will begin each week at 2:30 p.m. and will last for two hours.

The cost to participate in a PAWS Preteen Workshop is $20 each, or $150 for all. PAWS will also have a few scholarships available for those in need of financial assistance to cover the fee. To apply for a scholarship please fill out this form.

The Preteen Workshops also count toward school-required community service hours. A PAWS employee will be available to sign off on any time spent at the workshop.
