Experience the gift of giving with our Birthday Buddies program! Shelters are always in need of supplies, and you can help. Simply send out our wish list with your birthday party invitations, asking your guests to help a shelter animal by making a donation.  You can then schedule a tour to drop off your donations and meet our cats and dogs.  Be sure to provide your information so you can receive a thank you letter and an official Birthday Buddy Certificate from our animals! Parents, what a great way to teach your children about the importance of generosity and giving.


In order for your child to receive a tour, certificate and be recognized as a Birthday Buddy, you must make arrangements with the humane education manager in advance. We are unable to accommodate walk-in birthday tour requests.
