After-School Program

After School Program

Available to children ages 8-11 years, the Animals & Kids After School Program is a six-class session, which focuses on pet care and safety, but also incorporates lessons on animal habitats, dogs with jobs, wild animals, and much more! 

There are five sessions for the Animals & Kids After School Program throughout the Fall, Spring, and Winter. Each class meets on Mondays from 4:00-4:45 p.m. for six weeks. The registration fee is $60. Please note, there is a 4% transaction fee for online registrations and a $10 cancellation fee.

Just a few examples of class topics:
Paws Up!
A complete behind the scenes shelter tour that aims to educate and answer all questions about pet care, safety, overpopulation, etc. So raise your paws and ask away!
Dogs With Jobs
We will explore all the jobs that are available for dogs nowadays...and children will be surprised to learn that there are much more than service dogs and police dogs!  Also, we may get a surprise visit from a working dog (depends on their doggie schedule of course!).
It’s Raining Cats & Dogs
Learn about pet overpopulation and why spaying and neutering is so important.  Children will learn the difference between pet stores and animal shelters, and we will discuss ways to lower the homeless pet population.
Dogtor & Associates
A veterinarian will show us how to give our pets an exam on one of our shelter dogs, and teach us how to keep our furry family members happy and healthy! 
Paws, Claws, Hooves, and Horns
Time for an adventure to Africa, Australia, South America, and even Antarctica to learn about various endangered species and explore the wild side of the animal kingdom.
Happenin’ Habitats
Learn about the different habitats and their residents through educational games and activities.  We will also discuss ways to keep our environment happy and healthy for us and our animal neighbors.
