Activity Description

Help keep the dogs and cats at the Harris County Pets entertained while they wait for their fur-ever homes! Your family will make items such as dog or cat toys, fleece blankets, or rice sock warmers to comfort puppies and kittens. You might also make thank you cards to distribute to families adopting their fur-ever family member! After the activity, go say hi to all the adoptable cats and dogs!

Activity Requirements

  • This activity is great for all ages.
  • Generation SERVE adheres to the following COVID-19 policies to help keep your family and ours safe. We will continue to respect our partners' mask requirements as well as your family's decision around wearing masks.

More About Our Partner

Harris County Pets, resourced by Harris County Public Health, offers a safe haven to hundreds of lost, neglected and abandoned animals. Harris County Pets works in partnership with the community to create a secure, healthy, and caring environment for all the animals in their care until they are adopted into loving homes.  

Support Generation SERVE

We provide supplies and a trained facilitator for every activity. We would greatly appreciate a $30 donation to cover our costs for this activity. You also can become a family sponsor to support us in providing fun volunteer opportunities for other families! Thank you for your generosity!
