Tours can be scheduled for groups of up to 20 individuals that would like to visit the shelter and learn more about the Animal Defense League. Topics discussed during the tour include the intake of animals, care of animals while at ADL, process of adoption, hospital programs and ADL in the community. The tour includes a walk-through of our cage-free Cattery, Puppy Room and Kennels and a question and answer period. Tours can be scheduled Tuesday through Saturday between 10am and 5pm. Tours last 30 – 45 minutes and must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. Email or call Joely Cifre, ADL Volunteer Manager, at email@example.com or 210-655-1481 ext. 110 to schedule your group today!
The ADL is committed to educating the community about being responsible pet owners through our P.E.T.S. (Pet Education and Training for Students) program. Schools are encouraged to schedule a humane education program with ADL. Schools can opt to have an ADL representative come to clas with or without a dog (ADL animals are always fully vaccinated and leashed when off property). Schools can also choose to come to the ADL for a program and tour. School groups of up to 20 may come to the ADL to learn about proper animal care and the ADL mission. Topics discussed can include pet care, how to properly approach a dog, what to do when you see a stray and the importance of getting pets spayed or neutered. The school will determine the amount of animal interaction.
We are available Tuesday through Friday for Humane Education and can tailor an age-appropriate program for each class. Please contact the Volunteer and Community Relations Manager, Joely Cifre, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 210-655-1481 ext. 110 to schedule your humane education program today!
