Time spent with animals

We do our best to provide some hands-on time with animals — though we know that kids always want more! Sometimes, animal time is limited because we must be cognizant of the stress levels and health of the animals and of the fact that the shelter is a working adoption facility.

When possible, we do bring shelter-approved animals into the education space and allow kids to interact with them in small numbers. We also take kids on a shelter tour to introduce them to the animals and share their stories. For safety and insurance reasons, however, kids will not be interacting with shelter dogs.
