The Youth for Animals Club is designed for kids 9-13 years of age who want to learn how they can make a difference in the lives of animals.

The Fall meetings are held monthly on the first and third Tuesday of each month from 6:00 – 7:30 pm at the Placer SPCA Companion Adoption and Education Center in Roseville. Fall Club meetings (total of seven) are held on a monthly basis and run from September through December. Once registered, the club member is enrolled for all seven club meetings.

Club Meeting Dates:

  • September 4th and 18th
  • October 2nd and 16th
  • November 6th and 20th
  • December 4th

Students in the Youth for Animals Club will learn about:

  • Animal Welfare Organizations: Learn how and why animals enter shelter environments, caring for animals in shelter environments, and what they can do now to help support shelter animals;
  • Proper Care and Treatment of Animals: Learn how to safely handle animals, proper nutrition and exercise, basic grooming and health, and the costs of owning a pet;
  • Career Explorations in Animal Welfare;
  • And more!

Please note: The Youth for Animals Club is NOT a club for children who want to pet and play with animals. This club is designed for young people who are serious about learning how to help animals and willing to work towards that goal. Each member will do at least one service project during club meetings.

Club membership is $100.00 and is limited to 20 students, and includes seven club meetings. Parents or guardians of club members will be required to sign an electronic liability release through Eventbrite.
