Exclusive Invitation: Behind-the-Scenes Shelter Tour for Esteemed Dakin Supporters and Partners


We are delighted to extend an exclusive invitation to you and your guest(s) for a behind-the-scenes tour of Dakin Humane Society. As one of our esteemed supporters, we want to offer you a unique opportunity to witness firsthand the impact of your generosity and support.

We offer guided tours to supporters and partners throughout the year. If you wish to view animals during your tour, the best time to visit would be late spring and summer, when our animal population levels are the highest. Nearly ⅔ of our animal population at any given time can be in our foster network or behind the scenes receiving medical or behavioral treatment.

Why Attend?

This tour is intended for current or potential supporters and business partners who are interested in learning more about the programmatic impact and services Dakin offers our community. The guided 45-minute tour is conducted by our Development team members.

During this private tour, you will:

  • Learn about Dakin’s history and mission
  • Gain exclusive access to areas not typically open to the public
  • Engage in intimate discussions with our team members
  • Learn about Dakin’s programs and services and their impact on our community
  • Witness the transformative work being done at Dakin
