Group Visits / Tours

The DRHS provides humane education and/or facility tours for small and large groups. These sessions can be customized to fit your needs. Please contact our Community Outreach Coordinator at 563.583.3314 or outreach@dbqhumane.org to begin planning your DRHS experience!

The Five Freedoms and the safety of our animals is a priority of the DRHS. Therefore, we cannot accomodate group socialization or pet therapy sessions. These activities often place undue stress and anxiety on animals who are already in a high stress environment.


The DRHS animals are not trained or certified to provide therapy services; therefore, the safety of our guests is also a concern in these settings. Tours and educational sessions are a welcomed alternative to pet therapy groups.


Advance scheduling is required.
