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.
Students seeking information for a class project should contact our Education Department at (763) 489-2220. If your project is for a journalism class, you may also contact our Public Relations Department at (763) 432-4527.
Due to the large number of requests we receive, we ask that you please contact us at least one week in advance to schedule time with a staff person. We are unable to accommodate job shadow requests.
Although we don't offer short-term volunteering projects in our shelters, you can help us serve animals in other ways. Some project ideas include:
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. Click here for more information about tours. Our tour schedules fill up quickly, so please schedule at least 2 weeks in advance.
