At WSHS, humane education is about promoting respect, empathy and compassion for animals. Our humane education programs include:
2019 Class Offerings
View the available offerings for your classroom or group. Work with our Humane Education manager to tailor a class to suit your requirements.
Learn how you can schedule a tour of the West Suburban Humane Society.
After School Program
We offer an after school program for children that love animals. During each five week session, children will get an inside view of both the West Suburban Humane Society and one of the veterinary clinics that support our work.
Animal Explorers Summer Camp
Our Animal Explorer summer camp program is open to three age groups of kids who will get to participate in a variety of humane activities including crafts, games, a shelter tour and play time with some of the animal guests at WSHS.
