Take a break from the classroom for a new experience. Educational tours of the Charleston Animal Society provide a unique opportunity for all ages to learn about the role of an animal shelter in the community while providing guidance on responsible pet care and animal welfare issues.
Most tours last approximately 45 minutes and animal encounters cannot be guaranteed and are based on animals available at the time of the tour. This is the perfect way for students to see how a shelter operation works from start to finish. A visit to the shelter will spark a new understanding and compassion for animals as well as possible career paths! Tours of the shelter are free of charge. but donations to help offset the costs of providing these valuable learning opportunities are greatly appreciated. Contact De Daltorio, Director of Humane Education to set up a visit! [jtab/]Classroom Visits::

Engage your group/students with service learning and charitable activities and give something back! The Charleston Animal Society can provide guidance on service projects that educate groups while empowering them to help the homeless animals in our community. From food drives to fundraising there is no project to big or too small. A service project is a great way to teach a lesson in the value of helping your community and the impact that they can have in their own backyard. Find out how your organization can get involved!
