Stop by for a visit

Behind-the-scenes group tours are a great way to learn more about the day-to-day operations of a high-volume animal shelter. Guided by a member of our staff, groups visit both public and non-public areas of our 30,000 square-foot facility and (of course) have a chance to say hello to the animals. 

Tour Guidelines

Available Monday-Friday. Dependent on group size and time of day. Weekend tours scheduled on a limited basis and must be booked well in advance. Evening tours are not available. 

Tours must be scheduled at least 2 weeks in advance. Drop-in tours are not accommodated. 

Groups must consist of at least 5 individuals and may be no larger than 15. Groups larger than 15 must schedule separate tours.

Average time for each tour is approximately 45 minutes.

Tours are provided at no cost. Donations are appreciated. Check out our wish list for needed items.

To ensure a quality learning environment, we require a ratio of 1 adult for every 4 children under 16. *Note: for the safety of participants as well as our animals, ratio may be increased (1 to 1) for groups with children under age 6 or those with developmental delays or disabilities.
