Racine & Me: Wisconsin Humane Society Youth Programs

RACINE, WI (CBS 58) -- Our friends at the Wisconsin Humane Society work so hard for our furry friends, but they also do so much to educate the next generation. 

Stephanie Nespoli joined Racine & Me with some upcoming event details. 

Kids Night Out

WHS hosts Kids’ Night Out the second Friday of the month at our Racine Campus. It’s for children in grades 1 through 6, and it runs from 5pm to 7:30pm. The next Kids Night Out is Friday, November 11. Kids’ Night Out is a great way for kiddos to spend an evening making new friends, doing crafts, and meeting some of the wonderful animals at our shelter. Plus, it gives parents a chance to enjoy a Friday evening to themselves! You do need to pre-register and there is limited enrollment for social distancing purposes so be sure to get your tickets as soon as possible.

Scout Night

If your child is in a Scouts program, there are a couple options we offer. One is Girl Scouts Night for K5 through 12th grade. Troops get to interact with animals, make a craft to benefit our residents, and learn how to stay safe around pets. Upcoming sessions are Thursday, October 20 from 4:45pm-5:45pm or 6pm-7pm. Also Thursday, November 17 with the same time slots.

Field Trips

WHS offers a variety of field trips for all grade levels! We offer both in-person and virtual programs for students K4 through Grade 12, not only at our Racine Campus, but at our Milwaukee and Ozaukee locations as well. Field trips are a fun and educational way to engage students with curriculum that aligns with state and national standards and can be tailored to accommodate the needs of your classroom. Field trips include a virtual behind-the-scenes tour prior to your visit, an on-site tour of our adoption area, a fun lesson that aligns with your educational goals, and a chance for students to meet an animal.

Birthday Parties

The Wisconsin Humane Society offers birthday parties for kids ages 6-12! We take care of all the details so you can just bring your guests and enjoy the day. In-person party packages include cake & juice, a tour of our adoption area, and a meet & greet with some of our animal guests! Parties are for two hours, and 10 kids can attend. If you prefer to celebrate virtually, we also host birthday parties on Zoom.
