Field Trips and School Visits

Virtual Pets 101 Workshop

This interactive workshop can be customized to the grade-level and needs of your students. We might discuss topics such as responsible pet guardianship for life, with a review of animal safety and pet communication. For older students, we go over opportunities to help homeless animals and how to give back to the community. Students discover how much time, money, and effort it takes to keep a pet healthy and happy, and we incorporate issues such as pet overpopulation and the importance of adoption vs. buying your pets. Each participating student “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.

Cost: $10 per student. Minimum of 6 students. 

Contact our Humane Education Coordinator: lvanwagner@valleyhumane.org to schedule a date and time for your class.

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 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 Laura Van Wagner: lvanwagner@valleyhumane.org for more information and to book a field trip or school visit.
