Shelter Programs

Are you interested in a behind-the-scenes tour of the animal shelter? Or perhaps you'd like to help our shelter pets get tucked in for bed with a bedtime story? Take a look at our pages detailing Shelter Tours and our Reading Tails programs!

We offer shelter tours every month, providing an overview of shelter services, the animals in our care, and a behind-the-scenes look at shelter operations. For information on available dates and how to make a reservation, click the link below!

Reading Tails is a great program for kids who want to practice their reading skills, and help our shelter pets get tucked in for bed with a bedtime story!
