School Groups and Youth Organizations

Helping homeless animals teaches children responsibility and compassion. Gathering donations of food, toys, and other needed items is a great activity for a school class, youth group or other organization. Contact Heather Brannan, Manager of Community Programs, at (828) 761-2001 x 307 or email to schedule a visit or learn how your group can best help the animals.

Teachers and Youth Group Leaders

Once your visit has been scheduled with Heather Brannan, Manager of Community Programs, please have each child and their parent/guardian complete a parental authorization form. Unfortunately, we cannot have children participate without parent/guardian approval. Click here to download authorization form.

All participating chaperones must also complete a waiver of liability. Click here to download waiver.

We look forward to having your group tour our facilities and meet some of our adorable animals.
