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!

Earning a Pet-Pals Patch

1. Download the Pet-Pals Guide
Girl Scout Troop Leaders may download the Leaders Guide by clicking on the links below:

Guide for Daisy Level
Guide for Brownie Level
Guide for Junior Level
Guide for Senior/Cadette Level

2. Complete Activities
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 and collect their patch.

3. Attend a Workshop:

Saturday, January 16, 2021:  10 am
Saturday, March 20, 2021:  10 am  
Saturday, May 8, 2021:  10 am CANCELLED

Please visit our online registration form to enroll for your session. Cost of Girl Scout Night is $5 per scout, which covers the cost of the badge and tour of KHS.

To attend a Scout Workshop, you must have completed the Leaders Guide as a troop or as an individual for your level.  Bring the evaluation form from the Guide and a waiver for each Girl Scout attending.  If you do not have the Leaders Guide evaluation form and a waiver for each Girl Scout, you will not be able to take the tour or earn your badge.

**  We must have at least 10 Girl Scouts registered for a Girl Scout Night, if we do not have 10 registered 3 days prior to the event, it will be cancelled and Scouts may sign up for another Girl Scout Night. **

**  We do ask that extra adults and "extra" guests are kept to a minimum.  We want this to be for Girl Scouts to take the tour and earn their patch as the final step in the process. **
