Birthday Parties

Celebrate with the animals!

Animal-loving children love to spend their special day at AWS. Birthday party attendees receive a special tour of the adoption center and spend plenty of time snuggling with pets of all kinds.

Some children even ask that their guests bring donations for the animals in lieu of gifts for themselves. Such a generous gift is greatly appreciated. During their tour of the adoption center, birthday party guests immediately see how their generosity makes a difference to shelter pets!
