COD Cares Spring Day of Action is all about taking care of those sweet animals that make us smile from ear to ear! Check out the Action Stations and wish lists below, and then think about how you'll fulfill the COD Cares Challenge! After your service, stop by the "Granola Bar" and enjoy a tasty treat, including the obvious choice of "puppy chow".

*Get your puppy fix!* Comfort dogs will be on hand for you to squeeze and love on!

No need to register for this event! Just stop in when it's convenient for you!

Action Stations:

  • Make no-bake healthy dog treats
  • Create wild bird feeders
  • Plant catnip
  • Make knotted t-shirt chew toys


Donate much-needed items to local shelters, such as:

  • Fleece blankets
  • Canned dog food
  • Purina Kitten Chow
  • Clay litter
  • Striped sunflower seeds
  • Paper towels
  • Wand toys
  • Gently used bath towels
  • Ceramic food and water bowls



"Paws" for Kindness

Animals often provide comfort without expectation.  Let's do the same for others. 
1. Before the Day of Action, complete one act of kindness. 
2. During the Day of Action, anonymously record the act of kindness and display it on the provided wall.

*The acts of kindness will be read aloud at noon by Jason Florin (COD
Human Services Professor and Program Coordinator) to inspire others.  This activity is in coordination with the classmates of Human Services 1113, who have the same assignment as part of "Random Acts" Week.*

Compensated Service Hours:
A maximum of 2 Compensated Service Hours are available with prior supervisory approval and if the employee would otherwise be working during the time frame of the activity. Click here for further instructions.
