Effective June 1, 2018 the pricing structure for off-site programming will depend on distance from our Golden Valley shelter.

The AHS Humane Education program is based out of our Golden Valley shelter at 845 Meadow Ln. North, 55422. This is the starting point for all off-site programs.  We use Google maps to find the distance to each location and adjust the price accordingly.

  • Any location within 5 miles of the Golden Valley shelter will be $50
  • <10 miles will be $60
  • <15 miles will be $70
  • <20 miles will be $80

Any location more than 20 miles from our Golden Valley shelter is outside our service area. Programs can accommodate up to 50 people, this includes students and adults (with the exception of Furry Tales on the Road). Programs can be scheduled back-to-back to accommodate larger groups. Programs scheduled on the same day will be 50% off.

Discounts
An early bird discount is extended to groups that schedule a classroom program before Oct. 1 for a date within the same school year. Programs scheduled prior to Oct. 1 are 50% off.

Financial assistance is available for schools with high populations of students who qualify for free/reduced price lunch (FRPL). To request this discount, please have your school's FRPL data ready when you contact us to schedule your program. 

  • If 65-84 percent  of your school's students utilize FRPL, programs are $35 each.
  • If 85 percent or more of your school's students utilize FRPL, programs are $25 each. 

Discounts apply for offsite classroom programs only.
