BGWCHS Education Center

We are very fortunate to live in a compassionate community filled with animal lovers that support our shelters mission to save lives. 

It is because of generous donations and support we were able to build this building as a way to give back to our community and offer education programs so that citizens stay up to date on all the latest information concerning animal welfare. We believe that teaching compassion and animal welfare education will ensure responsible pet owners and happy pets for many generations to come. 

 This building gives us an advantage in the battle against pet overpopulation. We plan to use it to continue on our mission and save many more lives.

We are EXPECTING lots of kittens this season!

Group Shelter Visit

Many times people will have questions about what we do at our shelter. Sometimes it is a school group, some times an organization that wants to get involved and we have even had legislators want animal welfare information. We want to make sure these tours are available for anyone that is interested. If you or your group would like to learn more about how we save lives, please request a tour.

REQUEST A Group Visit

Request a visit from us

We would love to come visit with you! We need some information from you so that we can customize the visit for the best experience.



A Read-A-Thon is a fundraiser and a challenge to young readers. We ask kids to read to an animal or read a book about animals and ask friends and family for penny pledges for every page they read. It is a fun way to encourage children to exercise their reading skills and practice kindness.
