About Us    Board    Lost Pets    Behavior    Spay/Neuter    Animal Control    Extras    


By Jan Germann, Education Director


Do you have a scout, church, school or other community group that would like to take a field trip to our newly renovated shelter? HART invites you to schedule an after school or Saturday visit.

Included in the tour of HART is, of course:

* A visit with our animals
* A lesson on animal responsibility or another topic of your choice
* A craft and snack
* This one and a half hour event is a service HART provides for the community, but donations are

   always welcome

To schedule the tour, contact me, Jan, at 218-828-3449 at least two weeks in advance of your desired date. I will e-mail you a confirmation form that will ask for specific information about your group and allow you to make special requests regarding topics of discussion, etc. The form will also contain specific guidelines on student behavior at the shelter. This form will need to be returned to me at least one week before the visit.

This is a very exciting year at HART with the grand opening of our “new” shelter. I hope you will elect to join us sometime in the future months. Tours will begin in October.


* Would you like one of our professional teachers to visit your class or group? We are happy to make

  "house calls". We would love to shape a lesson to fit your specific course plan. A four legged friend

   can always join us.

* Don't forget, HART hosts birthday parties. We supply the decorations, fun bags, games/prizes,

   snacks, lesson and animal visit. You just supply the kids!

* Finally, our education program is "all age" friendly. We are eager to visit adult groups and talk

  about HART's work!

If you would like to schedule a visit or party or simply have questions about any of our opportunities, call me at 218-828-3449 or leave a message for me at HART (218-829-4141).
