ARF's Junior Volunteer Club is a service-learning club for middle schoolers who want to make a difference! Each session, club members will learn about a different aspect of animal welfare and sheltering, complete a volunteer activity, and interact with either a Pet Hug Pack therapy or ARF shelter animal. JV Club also satisfies most community service hour requirements for school.
