The Pack Logo

Young at Heart's "The Pack" Youth Club is a wonderful way for kids to help homeless senior pets! The Pack is open to children ages 8-17 and meets once per month, usually on a Sunday afternoon. The Pack Meetings will be held in various locations in the NW suburbs of Chicago and include humane and animal education, kid-powered fundraising, arts & crafts, and an end of year party each December.

While the kids will not usually be working hands-on with animals, they will get to interact with some of our adoptable dogs and cats at various meetings, and a Young at Heart Ambassadog will be in attendance at most meetings as well.

Annual membership fee is $75 per child and includes a t-shirt, drawstring bag, snacks, and crafts. Membership is good for 12 months from the month of enrollment and kids can enroll anytime, pending space. Parents may drop kids off for The Pack meetings. A waiver must be signed by a parent/guardian before a child can participate.

Inaugural club meeting:
January 31st at 12:30pm in Lincolnshire, IL
More details will be sent once your child is registered.
