Virtual Programs

For schools, scouts, or just for fun!

We now offer 25-45 minute-long virtual presentations. All of our virtual programs include a short education lesson and a virtual animal meet of one of our shelter cats or dogs! We also offer the option to add in a virtual behind the scenes tour or Q&A time with a knowledgeable staff member.

If there is a specific topic you would like us to cover, please let us know and we would be happy to do so. Our Presentation content can be tailored for any age, preschool through adult!
