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!

All activities are done during troop meetings or at home. The last activity the troop will do is visit the Kansas Humane Society for a tour.

3. Schedule a Tour 
Plan to be here approximately an hour and a half. Upon completion, the girls will receive a special Kansas Humane Society patch and the colorful bone patch that is associated to their level of scouting.
