Education & Outreach

Young-Williams offers animal welfare education programs to schools, businesses, and other agencies. Visitors may also schedule a program and tour of our facility. Programs are available to any age group and on any animal-welfare topic.


On-site programs are available Monday through Friday between noon and 5pm. To avoid scheduling conflicts, we recommend you have at least three dates available for a requested program. Also, please schedule your date as far in advance as possible, and Young-Williams will make every attempt to accommodate your program request. Although programs are not available during the weekends, visitors are always welcome to visit both adoption locations during operating hours. Adoption staff or volunteers will help you visit with an animal as time permits.

To make the most of your groups’ visit to Young-Williams, we ask you arrive at the animal center on time for your program. To maintain each day’s program and tour schedule, the program director must conclude the program at the scheduled time.
