Pet Wellness & Adoption Center Tours

Content can be modified for the age and education level of your group. You will have the chance to see animals who are waiting to find their perfect home and learn about the programs and services CHS offers to the community. A donation of $35 or equivalent of in-kind donations is requested for this service. Tours are a great way to kick off or wrap up a fundraising initiative to benefit animals. School groups and scouting groups are welcome!  Tours do not include hands-on interactions with the animals.
