Our educational tours focus on animal care, responsible pet ownership, the goals of the San Antonio Humane Society, and information on how we reach our goals. We currently offer 3 tour options:

Paid Educational Tours: This tour begins with an educational lesson from the Humane Educator, followed by a tour of the shelter. All participating kids will receive an animal-themed goody bag at the end. Paid tours last approximately 1 hour, depending on the size of the group and the amount of questions asked. The cost is $5 per participating child. This option is great for Girl Scout troops, Boy Scout troops, 4H clubs, or any other kids’ organization wanting to learn about animal shelters!

Free Educational Tours: This option consists of a tour of the shelter to learn all about the SAHS and our shelter pets without the lesson and goody bags. Free tours last approximately 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of the group and the amount of questions asked. Free Tours are great for any group who wants to see our shelter, but without the additional bells and whistles.

School Tours: We offer shelter tours beginning with an educational lesson for all San Antonio area schools free of charge.
