On-Going:  Visits by Appointment

Visit Our Humane Education Library


Our brand-new Humane Education Library consists of more than 200 books geared towards readers from Pre-K to 4th grade, with a focus on thoughtfully teaching kids about animals, humane animal care concepts, how to safely interact with animals, wellness, and more. 


Book a 15-minute visit for you and your child to come, pick out a book, and take it home to borrow for the week.  You will also have an opportunity to say 'hi' to an animal during your visit (animal availability permitting) and learn a little bit about them! 

Thank you to Eagle Scout, Cora Steichen for all her hard work creating the library!  In August of 2021, Cora, a junior at Bedford High School excitedly embarked upon the task of creating a Humane Education Library at the shelter as part of her Eagle Scout project.


This project was inspired by Anne-Marie Pepe (the 2020 Volunteer of the Year who began the Paws with Mrs. Pepe Humane Education Program in 2019) and was funded with the help of a Volunteer NH-Volunteer Generation Fund Grant as well as individual project supporters.
