Welcome to the weekend–Potter League style! Guided by Potter League staff, we will teach children to humanely care for animals, as well as the environment around them. By providing activities to support these goals, we are building a community of kind and compassionate children today to better our world tomorrow.
We offer several lessons:
“Our mission is simple—to care for all.”
Children will learn about what animal shelters do on an hourly, daily, and yearly basis. What makes Potter League unique? Where do our animals come from? We will read, learn, craft, and of course, socialize with the wonderful shelter pets.
With the help of a therapy dog and his wonderful handler, we will help children understand how to be cautious, but not fearful. Parents and children will learn best practice when it comes to dog safety.
Time to learn the ins and outs of animal care! Bunnies don’t clean their cages on their own, you know. Let’s get our hands dirty as we learn about what animals at the shelter need to stay happy and healthy on the road to adoption.
“Can you say ‘dream job’?!”
So, you want a career with animals. There are many amazing and rewarding jobs that allow you to interact and improve the lives of pets and animals. Let’s learn about what it takes to have your dream career. We’ll also cover what it means to be a volunteer at the Potter League.
The program takes place at the Potter League (87 Oliphant Lane in Middletown) in the Morris Education Center on the second floor of our handicapped-accessible building.
To sign your child up for Morning Mutt Club, please register below.
There is a program fee per child for each session they attend. This fee covers the cost of program materials and ensures the program can continue to be offered. If your child wants to attend and you are unable to afford the fee, please reach out to our Humane Education Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A portion of the Morning Mutt Club takes place while the shelter is still closed. We kindly request that parents/guardians wait in their vehicles, or drop their child off and pick them up when the program is over.
