Group Tours

Guided tours are available for youth groups, scout troops, students and adults. These interactive tours explore our adoption areas and provide information about responsible pet care, animal behavior and safety and what to consider when choosing a pet.

Your group will see many animals on the tour, but will not have hands-on interaction with the pets. We welcome anyone interested in adopting an animal to complete an adoption application after the tour and visit with the pet at that time. Please feel free to return at any time to see the animals!
