What is Kids Club?
Kids Club offers fun, education, and interactive experiences for kids who love animals. We believe in this program because building a more humane community begins with our youngest citizens. All children ages 5-12 are invited to become members! The Kids Club program features interactive, educational club meet-ups about specific subjects about animals. Programs are tailored to the audience’s age level and interests. All meet-ups are approximately 2 hours unless otherwise specified. Some programs may include special guests, animal service projects, fun crafts, or animal interaction.
Kids Club focuses on education more than cleaning or interacting with the animals at the shelter. Once kids have reached the age of 12 they can graduate to the junior volunteer program with their guardian or parent becoming a registered volunteer with them, which is more hands-on with the animals!

Where is Kids Club?

Playdates are typically 1:30pm - 3:00pm at the humane society unless otherwise specified.
You must be a Kids Club Member to attend.
2022 Tentative Dates: June 12th, July 10th, August 14th, and September 11th.
Because Kids Club regularly meets both indoors and outdoors, please dress appropriately for the weather and bring water bottles to stay hydrated! Members will receive more information via email about each playdate, 2-3 weeks before the playdate, and be able to RSVP. There are typically 15-18 kids at each playdate, plus guardians.
Parents & Guardians don't go too far! We want you to be included! We strongly encourage parents & guardians to stay for the playdate to learn alongside their children and help out where needed with crafts or activities. You will also be required to sign a waiver at the first playdate your child(ren) attend.
Kids Club Precautions with COVID-19
When COVID-19 cases are high, all children and guardians are required to wear facemasks when mandated by SFAHS during the educational portion of the playdate. Masks are recommended to be kept on during the rest of the activities including the game or craft section of the playdate. Masks can be removed to enjoy the snacks provided during the playdate, but please stay 6 feet apart from those outside your family
