Furry Tales story time

Thank you for making Furry Tales a success!  We are fully booked this summer (June, July and August) and are not accepting additional registrants*.


Furry Tales is a story time series ideal for children ages 2-4, along with their parents. 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.

Furry Tales takes place once a month at the following locations:

Golden Valley; 2nd Wednesday of each month; 10:00 - 10:45am

Woodbury; 1st Thursday of each month; 10:00 - 10:45am

There is no fee for this program but please reserve your spot on an individual basis; walk-ins may be turned away due to space and supply limitations.

*In the event of no-show participants, walk-ins are possible, however, we cannot guarantee registration.


Groups looking to attend Furry Tales are encouraged to schedule a private session with our educators for only $35. We are able to accommodate private groups at our Golden Valley, Coon Rapids, Woodbury, and Buffalo shelters but capacity varies per shelter based on room size.
