At AHS, humane education is about promoting compassion, respect, empathy, and the value of the human-animal bond. Animals become happier and safer and the young people who love them gain new insight into what it means to be human.
Our humane education programs include:
At AHS, humane education isn't just for kids. We offer programs for the entire family, including:
AHS has a new monthly story time series for children, age 2 and up, and their parents hosted at our Golden Valley location. Each month features a picture storybook read aloud by one of our humane educators followed by a craft and a special time with an animal.
All programs are from 10:00am - 10:45am and cost $5 per family.
Animal Humane Society frequently receives requests from students of all ages for animal photography opportunities and for information on our services and animal welfare issues. We appreciate students selecting these topics for school projects as they are helpful in spreading the word of Animal Humane Society’s mission in our community.
PetSet Youth Club has been a busy group in recent months! Check out some of their activities and events:
Walk For Animals
PetSet Youth Club hosted a tent at this year's Walk For Animals. Inside, children could create their own bandanas for their own pets or shelter animals. Some members also raised money and participated in the Walk.
