In 2023 we opened the Banks Humane Education Center to serve as the home to many of our most popular programs for children, pet owners, community members and volunteers. Programs often held at the BHEC include:
Compassion Camp for Kids
Yoga With Pets
Volunteer trainings and orientations
Please check our Events page for upcoming offerings.
Within the BHEC, the D’Amato Great Room provides approximately 1140 square feet of programming and event space, and there is also a kitchen, dual occupancy restrooms and an outdoor patio area. The parking lot offers spaces for 24 and overflow parking is available at the shelter across the street or in the adjacent field (seasonally). We expect to be able to offer the BHEC as rented event and function space beginning in fall of 2023.
