At home activities with your kids: Animal heart rates and you!

Looking for fun activities for your kids while you're at home? Here is a great lesson to help them learn more about their pets at home and themselves, while using science and math!

 

Practicing Getting a Heart rate

A friendly pet who enjoys attention and petting can be a great helper for this but no worries if your pet isn’t up to the task- a parent or guardian can lend a hand and act as the “patient” here!

Volunteer Spotlight: Sarah G.

Oh how we love Sarah G here at AAWL! In 4.5 years at AAWL Sarah has volunteered almost 1,000 hours – we are especially thankful that Sarah chooses to come to the shelter during off-hours. Sarah often comes during the less popular evening hours when we are short on volunteer help. She helps many of the Animal Care Technicians by getting the dogs out for one last extra long romp in the yard prior to closing.

I'm Duke, you saved my life.

My name is Duke, and your monthly donations saved my life.

After my mom passed away, I was tied up in a backyard for two years by people I thought would care for me. I cuddled with my sister for warmth and shared all my food so we could stay strong. We were eventually surrendered to a veterinarian for euthanasia for “medical issues”, but an AAWL partner knew they could save me with AAWL’s help.

Volunteer Spotlight: Patty & Thomas L

This month we would like to recognize Patty & Thomas L., an unstoppable mother/son duo! Combined Patty and Thomas have given more than 1,800 hours to our shelter animals over the last 3 years. These two are some of our most dedicated week day volunteer crew who spend their afternoons each week at the shelter helping our pups with exercise and socialization. The afternoons are tough for volunteers, especially when its 100+ degrees outside, but the heat doesn’t stop these two! They come to every shift with a smiles on their faces, ready to take on the day.
