Humane Education

Kids_and_kitten.jpgAt LHS, we’re passionate about teaching our community to respect, be kind and compassionate to animals, and understand the human-animal bond. 

We visit local schools, businesses and community groups providing educational activities, story time and workshops, teaching children to share the message about loving and respecting every living being. We have designed programs for Pre-K through High School exploring concepts such as good character, responsible pet care, and adopting locally from an animal shelter.

Golden_Door_Charter.jpgStory time

For our young learners, we offer story time sessions! Teachers can pick from our list of children’s books which include stories about how to properly care for and respect companion animals, how to interact with animals you just met, and why animal shelters are important. Our story time sessions are between 20-30 minutes and include an interactive activity as well.

Scout Programs

We welcome Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops to our shelter! Scouts can dedicate their Bronze, Silver, or Gold award project toward promoting a good cause. We create individualized projects to teach Scouts about the importance of pet adoption, spaying and neutering, and micro-chipping.

Shelter tours

We offer educational tours of our facility so students can see first-hand the work that goes into finding homes for so many animals each year.
