Youth Programs

If you're a kid and you love animals, then you've found the right spot! The Wisconsin Humane Society has a variety of purr-fect ways for kids of all ages to get involved.

***WHS has cancelled all in-person kids' programs until further notice***

In the meantime, we're offering virtual programs through the Wisconsin Humane Society Facebook page, including story time with a furry friend at 3:30 p.m. CST on weekdays (except Wednesdays), weekly "animal assignments” every Wednesday, and more. We're also offering online camps for grades 1-9 and virtual birthday parties for kids 6-12 years old so they can party with the animals from afar! Thank you for understanding and stay safe!
