Bring Valley Humane Society straight to your classroom or after-school program, or take a field trip and visit us!
School Field Trip Workshops

Field Trip Workshops are 1-1/2 hours long and include a behind-the-scenes tour.
School Visit Presentations
Mondays, time TBD
School Visit Presentations last for 1 hour.
Our interactive field trips and school visits can be customized to the grade-level and needs of your students. We might discuss responsible pet guardianship for life, with a review of animal safety and pet communication. For older students, we go over opportunities to get involved through Junior Volunteers and Critter Camp Leadership. Students can also meet a Canine Comfort dog and learn about our Paws to Read and Paws to Heal programs. Students discover how much time, money, and effort it takes to keep a pet healthy and happy, and we can incorporate issues such as pet overpopulation and the importance of adoption vs. buying your pets. Each participating child “adopts” a plush cat or dog with collar and tag to take home in a paper crate (if age-appropriate). Includes a Workbook for each participant.
Dates are available throughout the school year. Please contact our Humane Education department for more information and to book a field trip or school visit.
Cost: $10 per student
