Did you know that the Wisconsin Humane Society offers Youth Programs for kids of all ages, all year round? Here are some programs your little animal-lovers will delight in:
Kids Night Out (ages 6-12):
Drop off your child on select Friday evenings so they can enjoy pizza,
puppies, and animal-themed fun! Kids can get a private shelter tour, make an animal-themed craft, and meet some of the shelter guests. Find out more.
The next Kids' Night Out will take place at the Milwaukee Campus on Friday, October 19th and at the Ozaukee Campus on Friday, October 26th.
Community Storytime (ages 2-4)
Bring your little ones to hear an animal-related story, followed by fun activities and an opportunity to meet an animal guest. There is no fee for the program, but they do request you bring an item from their wish list to help the animals.
