Summer Kids Series

In 2021, this summer-long event will celebrate nine years and we cannot wait to take your Humane Heroes on an epic adventure through the world of animals. Register your littlest animal lover for our hands-on, educational sessions that will inspire and engage. Along the way, they’ll learn what it means to care for a pet of their own and explore ways to help animals in need.


Tail Talks

Why is our cat doing that? How do we get our dog to sit? What can I do to help animals in Texas? If your child has ever asked any questions along these lines – Tail Talks is for you! Join in on a virtual month-long educational adventure where your Humane Hero will complete games, activities, and challenges to earn their very own certificate. New this year, these sessions have a special track for each age group! Age Group 1 is for children 6 and under. Age Group 2 includes ages 6-10 and Age Group 3 is for children ages 10-14.

Rescue Reading

Make story time fun with special guests, animal-themed activities, and virtual meet and greets. Your Humane Hero will be captivated with sweet and silly storybooks all while learning about animals. This session is recommended for children 8 and younger.

Humane Hero Hour

Keeping our animals happy and healthy has never been more fun! Each week will provide the opportunity to get creative while learning about animals. We’re partnering with Creative Austin Reuse, Austin Wildlife Rescue, and local Austin musicians to get you grooving and moving. Your Humane Hero will have plenty of time to get artsy and create a fun animal-themed work of art all while learning about either cats or dogs. This session is recommended for children 8 and younger.

Teddy Bear Surgery

The all-time family favorite is bringing our clinic to you!! Through our virtual Teddy Bear Surgery, your Humane Hero and their favorite stuffed animal can register for a live, one-on-one visit into our world at Austin Humane Society’s real-life animal clinic. Children are invited to bring their stuffed animal to the virtual visit for a guided lesson in TLC as our shelter team helps diagnose and cure what ails their animal. One visit with our staff and everyone will be feeling better in no time!
