Children’s Programs

We will be opening our Children’s Programs soon!  Continue to check back for updates.

Parents’ Night Out

On one Friday each month parents can drop of their kids ages 5-12 from 6-9 pm and enjoy a night out. Each night will include different activities such as BINGO, Pet Jeopardy, crafts, and treats like Oreo truffles!  Of course, there will be time for your child/children to play with the pets. So sign them up, and plan your date night! It is just $20 for one child and $15 for each additional sibling.

School Field Trips


School groups are welcome to visit, tour, do fun crafts and learn about the humane society.  The Center for Pets can accommodate any size group.

Please email our Children’s Program Coordinator and set up a trip today!  What a great way to educate kids on pets and the world we all live in. We ask for a fee of $3 per child to cover the costs of supplies ($5 per child for groups larger than 30).

Anytime we are open you and your children can stop by and read to the dogs and cats. We have a handy reading wagon filled with lots a fun books.  They get to practice reading and the pets really enjoy the company.  It is a Win Win for everyone.  Just ask about our reading wagon at the front desk.  Book donations are always welcome!
