Early Childhood Animal Safety: Age 4 through 1st grade
For daycare, pre-K, and community groups with young children, we offer the TAILS Program: Teaching Animal Information, Love and Safety. This 30-minute program has been designed for young children, age 4 through 1st grade. TAILS presentations must be scheduled 3 weeks in advance and may be held at your location or at the Longmont Humane Society. We do not bring any live animals. In advance of your presentation, we ask that your group hold a wish list food and supply drive to learn about the gift of giving to animals in need.
Scheduling a TAILS presentation: Please complete and email the TAILS Presentation Form at least 3 weeks in advance of your preferred presentation date. If you have questions or would like additional information, please contact Tegan Waters.
Youth Service/Scout Projects
We receive many requests from youth groups to complete service projects at the shelter. Due to our limited resources, and to respect the needs of our staff and animals, we are unable to offer on-site service projects for youth. We encourage your group to facilitate your own fundraising and other service projects that will help our animals! Please see this document for ideas, though you are also welcome to create your own: Youth Off-Site Service Project Ideas
