Community service projects

Thanks for your interest in helping the animals at the Animal Humane Society.

Groups are also welcome to schedule a tour of one of our facilities at the time they bring in their donations. Tours last approximately one hour and there is a $1 per person fee for tours, with a $15 minimum. Our tour schedules fill up quickly, so please schedule at least 2 weeks in advance.
