Kids-N-Kritters Program

Kids & Kritters are two-hour sessions where participants (ages 9-12) will learn about animals, engage in hands-on activities with shelter residents, and have fun!  Each month a new topic will be explored.  The cost is just $10.00 per session, so plan to join us once every month! This program is also perfect for any small group, such as scout troops, clubs, etc! Scheduled sessions are held on Mondays and Thursdays from 4:00pm – 6:00pm. Registration needs to be made one month in advance. Space is limited (6 – 8 children per session) and taken on a first-come, first-served basis. You can request available class dates or register by emailing Katie-Sue Fisher at or by calling 847-697-2880 ext.51.
