  1. If you’d like to complete your service hours and pursue your project onsite at the Adoption Center, you can do this through Brother Wolf’s Volunteer Program. If you are under 18, your parent or guardian must also become a fully-oriented volunteer and accompany you during your volunteer service. Volunteer options at the Adoption Center for individuals under 18 years of age include socializing the cats, helping with laundry and dishes, filling Kong toys for the dogs, helping out at the thrift store, and working with the dogs on the Manners Patrol Team. For select projects, volunteer opportunities at the Brother Wolf Animal Sanctuary may be available. Brother Wolf staff can be available for interviews by request to share information related to our organization to support your project. Arwen will serve as your mentor can sign off on your service hours.
  1. Maggie and friends volunteer brother wolfYou can complete an off-site project that supports Brother Wolf and our No-Kill mission through Humane Education. You would track the time it takes you to complete these projects and Arwen will sign off on your hours. Projects that you can do through this option include:
  • Create a presentation around the importance of spaying and neutering pets, or why puppy mills are cruel to animals, or why adopting is better than shopping in order to decrease the number of homeless animals in shelters. Present it to your class or your grade in an assembly.
  • Create and design a large donation container or fundraising drive to buy items off of our Amazon wish list. Create a Facebook invite for all of your friends to come to a specific place- for example, your house for a pizza party, or a park (parent or guardian present) and collect donations.
  • Write and send an action letter to a legislator of your choosing regarding a topic concerning animal welfare that you are passionate about. Some examples are: BSL (Breed Specific Legislation), spay and neuter laws, county laws vs. city laws for what constitutes as animal neglect or abuse.

We are excited that you are interested in learning more about our organization and helping the animals in our care! Please fill out a student project application to apply here. If you have any questions, please send an email to
