Seasonal Programs


Year-Round Programs

My kids really love animals, especially dogs. The NAHS programs were perfect for their age levels and temperaments - my 6th grader went to K9 Manners and looked forward each week to seeing the dogs and getting to know them better through training. He gladly left sports early to work with Lauren and the other kids signed up. My second grade daughter was in heaven having her birthday party there. The kids got to go through the kennels and the cat rooms and safely interact with the animals. There was so much laughter and happiness throughout the time there. She told me on the way home it was the best birthday she could imagine. Lauren made it so easy to work with the shelter and my kids just felt so supported and special to spend time there with so many beautiful animals.
