  • Do I have to own a pet to sign up for the program?

    Pet ownership is not required... just a BIG heart & a LOVE for animals. Stuffed animals are welcome, too! We do teach responsible pet ownership as part of the Pawtectors Program. This provides the basic fundamentals of animal care & compassion for current pet owners, as well as future pet owners. Adult/guardian supervision is required for any optional animal interaction with our PawSquad members.

  • Do I have to start the program at the beginning of the month?

    Great question!! Our self-paced program is designed with a new themed Mission every month. Special guest events and other optional activities will be scheduled for the 3rd weekend of the month to allow participation by all Pawsquad members who have signed up during the month.

  • What is Pennies4PAWtectorS?

    The Pawtectors Program is designed to make a difference for homeless animals on many levels. Pennies4PAWtectorS is an OPTIONAL year-round fundraising activity for our PAWSQUAD members. It's simply collecting spare change from community businesses, organizations, school groups, etc. Collected monies are then donated to local rescues to help with the care of their adorable adoptables waiting to find their FUREVER home, or to our #YouAreNotFURgotten compassion fund.

  • What is the Pawtectors' "YouAreNotFURgotten" Compassion Fund?

    Pawtectors wants to teach children that THEIR voices CAN make a difference. The YouAreNotFURgotten Compassion Campaign fund is a signature charity fund designed to help animals in need. PAWSQUAD members will SUGGEST & VOTE on what the compassion fund will donate monies to.

  • Can I volunteer for the Pawtectors Program?

    We strive to offer the most robust, well-rounded year-round educational experience for our PAWSQUAD members. We are always looking for Guest Instructors who would like to share their passion for helping animals & inspiring animal compassion. You can be a animal-centric business, rescue, school, author, celebrity, athlete, school group, organization... obviously the list is endless. Because of the age of our PAWSQUAD members, we exercise the right to refuse things that would not be a good fit for our program. Reach out to us on the PAWTECTORS main website with your ideas & suggestions. We can't wait to hear from you.

  • What is pricing if you have multiple children in a family?

    The Pawtectors Program monthly and annual options are a flat fee per household, NOT child.

  • How safe is the online learning platform?

    Our membership site is created on the THINKIFIC platform. There are no chat rooms, no messaging/interaction between PAWSQUAD members or their parents/guardians. Members cannot POST anything directly to the site. All content & course curriculum is provided directly by the PAWSQUAD team.

  • Are there Pawtector in-person events & activities?

    All of our PAWSQUAD learning & activities are on-line. There will be times we have activity worksheets giving lists of things to do outside the home. These will be optional & done individually (as a family) with parent/guardian supervision at your discretion. For the safety of all our PAWSQUAD/PAWTECTORS members, we hold no group in-person activities & do not allow ANY FORMAL group gatherings under the PAWTECTORS/PAWSQUAD name.

  • Can we create a group of PAWSQUAD members in our neighborhood?

    Because the safety of our young members is our top priority, we do NOT allow any group or community gatherings off-line under the name of the Pawtectors Program or PAWSQUAD members. PAWSQUAD members CAN participate in individual PAWTECTORS approved activities like blanket/toy/food drives for rescues, etc. with written approval from the PAWSQUAD team 30 days prior to the event.
