Wednesday Workshop Series

Wednesday Evenings
VHS Adoption Center, 3670 Nevada Street, Pleasanton
4-5 pm

Learn how you can make a difference for animals in our community! Valley Humane Society’s Wednesday Workshop series offers animal-loving youth and families a chance to create enriching experiences with dogs and cats by exploring their unique needs and finding out what keeps them healthy and makes them happy. Each Wednesday Workshop will consist of humane education lessons that explore topics such as animal welfare and pet responsibility. While all activities will be centered around helping adoptable animals, animal interaction is not guaranteed.

Workshops are geared for children ages 8 and up. Parents are welcome. Each workshop is limited to 10 registrants. There is no fee to attend, but registration is required, and donations are welcome. ALL participants will be required to wear a face covering for the duration of the workshop. Sign up today!
