The Dubuque Regional Humane Society's Humane Heroes is a junior volunteer program for kids age 8-11 (kids 12 and over can become regular DRHS volunteers.)
For a $25 annual membership (coinciding with the school year), your child has the chance to become a humane hero. Kids learn about the work of a humane society, pet care and needs, plus, have the chance to try out all the different ways to volunteer!
