SCOUTS & GROUPS
We love scouts and groups! And we love it when group leaders schedule a visit at our shelter. At Anderson Animal Shelter, our programming meets certain scout badge requirements as well. We are proud to be a Preferred Partner of the Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois.
Are you looking to learn more about the importance of pet adoption and the vital role shelters play in our communities? Then sign up your group for a visit to Anderson Animal Shelter! A visit to our shelter is an educational and fun experience for your scouts or other youth groups and can be used to meet certain badge requirements. We are unable to offer onsite volunteer opportunities to minors, however, many troops choose to complete a service project for the shelter offsite on their own prior to visiting.
Visits to the shelter are 60 - 90 minutes in length, are appropriate for up to 25 participants including adults. Your time at the shelter will consist of an educational session about our animals and shelter, a tour of the shelter where your group will be able to meet a few of our animals. Cost is only $10 per participant, and fun patches are included! Visits must be scheduled in advance; to schedule, please contact Carrie Frost, Humane Education Manager at or (847) 697-2880 ext. 51.
