School Visits

The Sioux Falls Area Humane Society offers classes behind-the-scenes tours of the SFAHS adoption center, to help educate children about what we do at the humane society to help enhance classroom lessons. From the adoption center front office to the animal adoption floors, get an up-close look at how the shelter operates and experience the compassion we offer all animals in our care!

School visits must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance of the requested tour date.
The maximum number of people on a scheduled tour is 15 people.
Tours are only available Mondays through Fridays and depend on availability.
