Santa Cruz SPCA Fall PAWS Tier 2 Junior Program Ages 10-12

November 2, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Recurring Event Event Series (See All)

Santa Cruz SPCA Fall PAWS Tier 2 Junior Program, Ages 10-12

Thursdays, 4 – 6pm, September 14, October 5, November 2, December 7

PAWS 2, Promoting Animal Welfare with Students, builds upon the knowledge and skills developed in the PAWS 1 program. Students will work with our shelter animals, learning new commands, developing good leash etiquette and helping them to be socialized and adoption-ready. PAWS 2 participants will learn about some different issues that affect the health and well-being of animals and will problem-solve different solutions to help them.

Prerequisite: At least one or more of PAWS 1 sessions completed

These sessions, which meet for three weeks on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4-6pm September through December, are for students who have been in our PAWS program more than once and are ready for a new challenge.  In PAWS Tier Two we begin exploring some of the larger animal welfare ideas and learning about some of the reasons why animals who come to our shelter as well as what different kinds of animals face out in society.  They will continue to progress on animal handling and advocacy skills they have developed in their previous PAWS engagements.

As we have a high interest in our programming, initially students should only sign up for ONE session in the September through December period so that we can accommodate as many new learners as possible!  If there is additional space after we have initially placed everyone, you can share your information with us to be contacted!

(Junior PAWS Tier 2-For 7–9-year-old participants, each Wednesday for three weeks out of the month, 4-6pm)

Pre-teen PAWS Tier 2-for 10–12-year-old participants, each Thursday for three weeks out of the month, 4-6pm

We ask all students who have never done our PAWS program before to instead sign up for our PAWS Tier 1 program.   If you have questions or need help in figuring out where your student fits, please contact us at 831-566-3753.
