Kids-N-Kritters Program

Kids & Kritters sessions are two-hour interactive animal encounters where participants ages nine through twelve 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: Boy/Girl Scout Troops, clubs, even birthday parties! (Dates, times and age range are flexible for group registrations.) Sessions are held: Mondays 5:00pm – 7:00pm and Thursdays 4:00pm – 6:00pm. Registration is limited and taken on a first-come, first-served basis one month prior. You can request available class dates or register by emailing Katie-Sue Fisher at or by calling 847-697-2880 ext.51
