Field Trips

We are proud to offer customizable half-day field trip programs for students in Kindergarten through Grade 12! You can choose from any of our presentations and students get the opportunity to learn while connecting with animals, completing fun activities and checking out the only fully open-admission animal shelter in Southern Alberta!

Choose from any of our classroom presentations to begin your morning and let our experienced educators round out your field trip with an *animal guest and tour of our facility; the perfect field trip experience for your class!

Field trips run September through June, weekday mornings and can accommodate up to one class (a maximum of 30 students). Field trips run from 9:30am to 11:30am each day.

Worried about time for lunch? Request an extra half hour in our learning center for your students to eat lunch at no extra charge! (Please note: chairs and tables are available but teachers and chaperones are responsible for area clean-up as well as set-up and take-down of any furniture used for lunch. We also provide tablecloths that can be spread out for “picnic” style lunches on the floor if desired.)

Classroom Presentations – We Come to you!

Our in-class presentations are approximately one hour in length and were developed as an educational resource to support teachers in meeting their curriculum objectives. Delivered either in person, or over Zoom as educators of responsible pet ownership, empathy and violence prevention, we promote the development of social and emotional literacy skills by offering quality programs at the shelter or in the classroom. Links to specific outcomes outlined in Alberta’s Education curriculum are provided in each program description. Choose from any of our classroom presentations here.

Valued at $99, our classroom presentations are available as pay what you can through the booking link below.
