The Cherryland Humane Society Enrichment Program will encompass the general welfare and enrichment of the Cherryland Humane Society shelter animals. Enrichment for shelter animals will decrease and eliminate stress, add mental stimulation, improve socialization and bonding as well as enhance quality of life, and increase adopt-ability. The program will teach our animals to be more confident, increase their willingness to learn and to connect to others. The program will consist of evening walks, training, mental stimulation, grooming, arts and crafts for the animals, outside play pen activities, interactions, cat leash walking, cat crafts such as boxes and mobiles and many many more!
A group of dedicated current CHS volunteers will be scheduled and assigned to 2 hour block times throughout the week to visit and perform various tasks. The enrichment program will be three days a week. Volunteers are welcome to be scheduled for multiple times a week but overall must commit to once a week, may vary with the number of volunteers interested. You must be a current CHS volunteer who has already attended a volunteer orientation to participate. If you are interested in the program, please email Tia, Kennel Technician & Behaviorist here: firstname.lastname@example.org
