NEW Virtual Adventures for Girl Scouts and BSA Scouts

*Due to COVID-19 precautions, our Scout Night programs will be virtual for the 2020-2021 school year.

BSA Scouts and Girl Scouts are invited to experience the Wisconsin Humane Society virtually for a fun-filled workshop to learn all about animals and the work we do to find them loving homes. During the live virtual workshop, your troop will learn how animals communicate their feelings, watch a DIY pet toy tutorial, take a virtual behind-the-scenes tour, and meet some furry friends! Your reservation includes access to a digital platform with scout-specific activities to help your troop complete their badge, journey goals, or Adventure! Exclusive Wisconsin Humane Society patches are available for purchase at the time of registration.

The digital platform includes custom activities developed to help you complete the Daisy’s 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals Journey and Bird Bath Award, the Brownie’s Pets Badge, or the Bear Scout's Critter Care Adventure. If you have specific, animal-related goals that your troop is working toward, please let us know, as there may be additional resources we can provide.

We offer also private virtual programs for scouts who can’t attend a Virtual Adventure. Virtual programs are an hour long and include a tour of an adoption area at the shelter, a craft, and information on either animal body language/safety or animal welfare careers. The fee for a private virtual Scout program is $100 for up to 10 scouts, and $10 for each additional scout. To book your program or for more information, contact youthprograms@wihumane.org.

Dog Care Merit Badge Clinic for BSA

Currently offered at the Milwaukee Campus and virtually

Join the Wisconsin Humane Society Milwaukee Campus to work on your Dog Care Merit Badge and have a howlin’ good time in the process!  Meet some sensational dogs, learn first aid basics, get the scoop on animal care, the basics of dog training, and more. Upon completion of the clinic, scouts will be able to sign off on at least eight of the ten requirements for the Dog Care Merit Badge. 

  The health and safety of the young people who attend our programs are our top priority and we have made some important changes to ensure safety, including:

  • Limiting enrollment for the clinic to eight participants to maintain physical distancing
  • Limiting the number of people in the shelter building for other services
  • Asking participants and staff to abide by a health policy and to stay home if ill
  • Increasing cleaning and handwashing before, during, and after the program
  • Moving activities outside as possible
  • Requiring all participants and staff to wear masks when inside

Dog Care Merit Badge Clinics are offered on the following Saturdays from 1 - 5 p.m.

  • March 13 | Virtual
  • May 15 | In-person (click here to learn more about our health and safety precautions for in-person programs)
