Hand in Paw Kid's Club

Get HIP. Join the Hand in Paw Kids Club!

The Hand in Paw Kids Club is for children ages 6-11, who love animals and want to create a better future for animals. The club is a great opportunity for children to learn about proper animal care, safe handling, respect for wild animals as well as pets. The club promotes kindness, compassion and empathy for all animals and living beings.





Kids events run during the school year and are held monthly. Families can sign up for any event that sparks interest in their child. Events are either free or at a discounted fee for HIP members. Additionally, during the summer, HIP members will receive discount for our numerous summer camps. Most events are held during the weekends or on Friday evenings.
