Would you like to see the shelter in action?  Would you like your class to gain some up-close experience?  Then bring your class on a field trip to Anderson Animal Shelter!  A visit to our shelter can be an incredibly fun and educational experience for your class field trip!  Field trips are about an hour, are appropriate for up to 30 participants.  The hour will consist of an age-appropriate education session about our animals and facility, plus a tour of the shelter and meeting a few of our animals.  There is no charge to public and private schools for field trips; donations are always appreciated.


To schedule your next field trip, please contact Carrie Frost at or (847) 697-2880 ext. 51
