The Pawfessionals works with JHS to develop committees designed to fit the needs of the animals at JHS. We ask each Pawfessional to commit to 10 hours per quarter via service on a committee. These hours can be donated thru hands-on volunteering and from your home or office via email and phone. For more information on how you can help please email individual committees below.
