HSHV offers Humane Education programs for children of all ages. Here are some of our great programs:
Do you have a young child who loves animals? Then, bring your little ones to HSHV’s Little Paws program to have a paws-itively fun time!
Designed for ages 2-4, this program will keep your tot engaged through stories, activities, crafts, and animal interactions! Each session offers animal themed fun that is sure to delight your child and give you a chance to have fun and learn together! Pre-registration for this event is required and a guardian must accompany and stay with the child during story time.
Available spots do fill up quickly, so be sure to reserve your space by registering online. Please check back later for future story times.
What could be more fun than spending your Friday night with our furry friends at HSHV?
This paw-tastic event is appropriate for ages 5 and up and will include adoptable animal interactions, a vegetarian dinner and an animal themed movie with popcorn! Children are invited to wear their pajamas, bring a sleeping bag and pillow and be ready for some animal themed fun while parents enjoy a night out on the town! Pets and Pajamas movie night is offered once a month and is a great way for children to enjoy some after hours time at HSHV!
Our Animal Care Education (A.C.E.) Kids Club is a great way for school-aged children ages 5-11 to learn about animals, while supporting HSHV at the same time! What could be more "purrfect" than that? This six week program is designed to teach children how to care for and interact with animals in a safe, respectful and compassionate way. Through lessons, stories, games, crafts and animal interactions, our A.C.E. Kids Club will help children to become more responsible and compassionate future pet owners.
Please check back in August to register for the fall session of A.C.E.
Come and join us for a camp filled with animal themed fun that will surely leave your tail wagging! Through animal interactions, educational lessons, crafts, games, field trips and visits from local rescue groups, campers will learn how to care for and respect our animal friends. Because we know that kids love learning about animals year round, HSHV offers both summer and winter sessions of Camp PAWS. Designed for ages 7-11, campers will engage in activities that will help to prepare them to become responsible and compassionate future pet owners! Stay tuned for more session information!

We are offering a 6-session Junior Volunteers Club to help youth engage in and learn about some of the fantastic volunteer opportunities at our shelter! Working alongside our Humane Educator, Volunteer Coordinator and a mentor volunteer, youth in the J.V. program will attend six volunteer training sessions in which they will learn different procedures, policies and safety precautions for working with and caring for animals.
Each session consists of a 45-minute volunteer training program and 75 minutes of onsite volunteer time. Registered youth who attend all six sessions will receive twelve hours of volunteer time, which can be used towards required community service hours. Upon completion of all six sessions, certified Junior Volunteers will have opportunities to volunteer at HSHV!
Limited scholarships are available for students with financial need. To apply for a scholarship, download the Junior Volunteers Scholarship Application and mail the completed form to the address provided on the form.
