Time spent with animals

We do our best to provide some hands-on time with animals. Animal time may be 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.
