Educational Outreach

With our mission always in mind, we strive to find new partnerships throughout the community. Educational Outreach is something that we take very seriously, which is why our team visits different organizations throughout the community to provide brief presentations about our mission.


The Paw Pantry would not be possible without our volunteers. Volunteers are selected at the beginning of each semester. Volunteer applications for Spring 2022 can be found here.
