Humane Education

A.D.O.P.T.’s Humane Education program offers children of all ages the opportunity for hands on experiences to learn about our shelter, the animals we help and the important issues in animal welfare today.

The purpose of our Humane Education program is to provide a variety of unique learning experiences that support the bond between people and animals by nurturing knowledge, compassion and respect toward all living things.

Service Group Presentations

A.D.O.P.T. gladly offers informative presentations to any interested service group. We can provide a general animal welfare presentation or tailor it to cover specific topics of interest.

To schedule a service group presentation or if you have any questions, please call 630-355-2299 or email Chris at

Scout Tours

We welcome scout troops to join us for an educational field trip to the shelter.  All visits include a fun and informative talk to introduce scouts to the world of animal shelters and a behind-the-scenes tour of our facility.  Groups are limited to 15 people, including children, parents, and group leaders.  At this time, group tours are available on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays between 3:00 - 5:30 pm; tours last approximately 1 hour.  There are a limited number of spaces per month, so please plan to book your tour well in advance.

To schedule a tour for your scout troop or to learn more about this program, please call 630-355-2299 or email the humane education volunteers at

Please note - Our tours or presentations are provided free of charge. If possible, donations are always appreciated!
