The Humane Education Department offers tours of the Burlingame center for groups who are interested in learning about our work with animals. Up to 24 people at a time (including adults for children’s groups) can be accommodated. The tour guide starts with a discussion about our services, the different kinds of animals received, and ways people can help them. A walk-through includes seeing the dogs, cats, small and exotic animals up for adoption that day. We ask for $1 per tour participant. Tours last approximately one hour and are conducted on weekdays between 10:30am and 5:00pm by appointment only. For more information, please contact Kylynn Pelkey, Humane Educator, by calling 650-340-7022 ext. 369 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
