Once again the Los Alamos Teen Center needs puppies, kittens, dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, and other cuddly animals for our traditional end of semester de-stress activities for high school students!

We have a whole range of activities going on from the May 20th to May 31, including three afternoons with animals to cuddle with. Our plan is to host animals on:

Tuesday 5/21
Thursday 5/23
Tuesday 5/29

Generally, we have two “shifts” each day: 2:45 p.m. to 3:45 p.m.  and 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. with two different animals (or small groups with the same owner) per shift.

If you are able to help, please contact us using the information below to schedule a time. We work hard to make sure that we only schedule compatible combinations of animals in a given time slot.

Owners will need to stay to supervise their animals and there will be volunteer teen hosts to help out and clean up any messes that might occur.

To volunteer yourself and your pet please call the Teen Center at 505.695.7415 weekdays between noon and 6 p.m. and ask for George or Eli or e-mail latc@laymca.org.

Thanks in advance for your help! The Los Alamos community has stepped up and helped out with this for a number of years and the teens really appreciate it. I can promise that few things are more satisfying than watch the stress disappear from a teen as they cuddle with your pet!
