The Women's Humane Society, America's First Animal Shelter founded by women in 1869 and located in Bensalem, PA, always appreciates young volunteers whether that be at their building or an off-site project. Their facility offers a program called Story Tails where youth can come read to their animals which socializes their pets while also improving reading skills. From home, scouts can make homemade toys or treats, organize a fundraiser or donation drive, hold an educational event with their troop or school to learn about animals, or many other options! They are open to creativity when it comes to finding unique ways to help their shelter animals!

Pawsibilities Animal Rescue is compiled of a caring staff and volunteers whose goal is to save and improve the lives of domestic animals. Whether sick, injured, stray, abandoned or owner surrendered, Pawsibilities is there to give animals the love and care they need and deserve. We are a no-kill shelter with a desire to make a difference in the lives of the animals we rescue. We strive to educate the public on the animal overpopulation problem and the importance of spaying and neutering, allowing them to realize the benefits of opting to adopt instead of buying a pet. Pawsability is always looking for volunteer ideas and projects that will help their animals. Troops can run donation drives for pet supplies, help rebuild or paint rooms or spruce up kennels.

LaMancha Animal Rescue is a no-kill rescue, located in Unionville, Pennsylvania. They are a privately funded 501c3 charity that was originally formed as an alternative to the slaughterhouse for ex-racehorses. Today LaMancha rescues and finds homes for not only horses but also dogs, cats, goats and the occasional exotic animal that requires more space or specialized knowledge than most SPCAs can offer. Typically troops interested in volunteering visit and are oriented in an educational tour on the mission and function of the rescue. This may precede or follow off-site donation drives or construction of toys; it may immediately precede a day of service which would include some age-appropriate tasks, some of which would include hands-on with animals, usually puppies. The youngest come for a very short visit and juniors and up stay longer.
