Shelter Tours & Field Trips

Our Education Team is pleased to offer shelter tours & field trips for children, youth and community groups.

As a not for profit organization, the Winnipeg Humane Society relies on the support of our community to operate the animal shelter and provide services and programs.  A tour or field trip is a terrific opportunity for children and youth to see firsthand the results of this support and learn more about the role of pets in our lives and the role of the WHS in our community.

Tours & Field Trips can be catered by WHS staff to meet your specific needs, interests and requirements based on your group.

Tours Include:

  • 5 minutes: Shelter Rules
  • 40 minutes: Shelter Tour (includes animal interaction with cats & critters)*
  • 15 minutes: Dog Interaction*
