Watauga Humane Society Team Educate
Watauga Humane Society’s TEAM EDUCATE volunteers conduct various programs at the shelter and in schools with area children designed to spread the word about the mission of the WHS and the humane care and treatment of animals. During the school year 2016-17, volunteers visited all elementary schools in Watauga County, serving 326 second graders and 326 fifth graders. Student groups, including public, private, and charter schools, scout troops and 4H camps, also visited the WHS Adoption Center for tours, animal meet and greets, crafts and pet safety presentations.

In addition to volunteer visits to schools, teachers can partner with Team Educate by sponsoring a pet food and supplies drive with their students and then visit the shelter to donate the supplies. Donations support the care and feeding of our shelter animals, as well as help to stock our pet food pantry. These visits proved to be so successful that we have expanded this field trip option to include a variety of fun activities for students, including shelter tours, interaction with animals, craft activities and pet care and safety presentations.

Team Educate also sponsors “Reading for Paws,” a popular summer program which is an opportunity for children, grades 2-8, to practice reading skills and interact with our shelter animals.
