Kansas Humane Society's Pet-Pals Patch Program
Our Pet-Pals Patch Program for scouts will teach important lessons in pet care, understanding animal body language, and the health and well-being of our animal friends. It is a four level program, giving each level of scouting individual tasks, opportunities and resources to learn more about pets and what we do here at KHS and why.
Having each level of scouting incorporated allows several years of learning about animals and four special bone patches to earn. All patch levels conclude with a special behind-the-scenes tour of our beautiful facility as well as puppy playtime or kitty cuddling!
