Birthday parties

Celebrate your birthday with a different kind of party animal!

Animal Humane Society is a natural location for your party animal’s next swingin’ birthday bash. It’s two hours of fun with a little bit of learning. AHS is a unique destination that brings out the “Happy” in “Happy Birthday”! Plus, you’ll be helping one great cause by throwing one great party!

The basic party package includes:

  • 1.5 hours of activities led by an educator at any AHS location, including a shelter tour, educational activities, and animal-themed games and crafts
  • An additional half hour for your personal birthday celebration (gift opening, etc.)
  • A visit from a special animal guest
  • Printable invitations, decorations, balloons, and a small gift bag for each child

Cost to host an AHS birthday party is $200 (a $50 nonrefundable deposit is required to hold a party date).

Families are welcome to bring their own cake, candles, and paper goods.

In order to make your party an amazing experience for your child and their guests, the maximum number of guests is as follows. All children attending must be 7 years of age or older.
