Homeschool Thursdays are a terrific way for children to gain experience with animals and get involved in shelter projects. Each session will explore animal care and behavior, IHS goals and mission, humane awareness, compassion, and service. We strive to share the shelter’s purpose and programs as well as teach younger generations about humane care for pets and safety around animals. Some of the activities will include reading to animals, creating our own enrichment toys, making and distributing treats and helping around the shelter.

Register for one day or all semester: $20.00 per session or $65.00 for all four dates! Only registered children may attend.
