Summer Kids Series
The youngest animal lover in your life has more reason to celebrate this summer, as our Summer Kids Series gets underway. 2018 marks six years for the family favorite that allows kids to get hands on as they learn more about the world of animals and the Austin Humane Society. Along the way they’ll find out what it means to care for a pet of their own and be inspired to help animals in need. In 2018, we have more sessions geared toward the older kids including “Tail Talks” and “It’s Showtime: Outdoor Movie Nights”.

Summer Kids Series kicks off on June 5th and wraps on August 14th. We can’t wait to see you and your family this summer at AHS!

Sessions include:
Austin Wildlife Rescue
Central Texas is brimming with wildlife. Who better to help your kids explore than our friends at the Austin Wildlife Rescue. We’re teaming up to bring the wild to you! Your young explorers will learn all about baby animals, what to do if you see them, and how they live in the wild. Plus, we’ll have a special guest on hand…Tito the Tortoise!

Art Workshop
When art and animals meet, who knows what will happen! Bring your budding artist and their creativity and we’ll supply the rest. Kids will have plenty of time to get artsy and create a fun animal-themed work of art all while learning about either cats or dogs.

Humane Hero Hour
Keeping our animals happy and healthy, has never been more fun! The kids will get crafty as they work on making toys that will actually be used by our animals at the shelter! These toys help keep the dogs and cats active and engaged while they wait to find their forever home. Once they make them, they’ll get to see the toys in action. You’ll meet some furry friends along the way. Plus, we’ve got some surprises in store!

Story Time
Each Story Time session focuses on either feline friends or canine companions. Children will learn about the animal through a silly and sweet storybook. Then, new this year, our Rescue Readers will spread out through our shelter to give the animals some love too!

Teddy Bear Surgery
The all-time family favorite is back! Through Teddy Bear Surgery, your little one and their favorite stuffed animal can step into our world at Austin Humane Society and a real-life animal clinic. Kids are invited to bring their stuffed animals along for a little TLC as our shelter team helps diagnose and then cure what ails them. One visit with our staff and everyone will be feeling better in no time!

Tail Talks (New in 2018)
Why is our cat doing that? How do we get our dog to sit? What baby animals live in Texas? If your child has ever asked any questions along these lines – Tail Talks is for you! Join the fun as we dig a little deeper into the world of dogs, cats and shelter life at the Austin Humane Society. These interactive sessions are best suited for 8-12 year olds and will include special guests each week highlighting topics like Why’s My Cat Doing that: Cat Behavior 101, That’s a Good Pup: Doggy Training Tips, and more!

It’s Showtime: Outdoor Movie Night (New in 2018):
Grab your picnic basket and load up your pack for a family-friendly movie night at the Austin Humane Society. These once a month events will feature an animal-themed movie fit for the entire family. Plus, we’ll have concessions, games, and kid’s activities, too. Movie nights will be held outside on the AHS lawn. The movie will start at sundown. Well-behaved, leashed dogs are welcome to join the fun! (In the event of rain, the movie will be shown inside the AHS Auditorium)
