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 made some changes to our programs in response to COVID-19***

Many programs have been converted to a virtual format. Any remaining in-person programs have new safety precautions and limited enrollment. We're also offering a weekly story time on the Wisconsin Humane Society Facebook page each Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. CST.  Thank you for understanding and stay safe!
