Pawsome Birthday Party Idea

for little (and not so little) animal lovers

Last Updated:


Is there a birthday on the horizon? Why not mix it up this year with a fun event that helps shelter animals? The San Antonio Humane Society, Texas, hosts birthday parties for little pet lovers and their friends at their shelter. Guests meet the shelter pets, receive goodie bags, and partake in fun activities like reading to shelter pets or making enrichment toys for the shelter dogs.

The Humane Society Broward County, Florida, also hosts events, proclaiming, “Whether you’re 6 or 60, children and adults both agree that having a party at the Humane Society of Broward County is a tail-waggin’ good time!” If you’re over 21, check out their Yappy Birthday Parties, a perfect combination of puppies and booze. Party activities include hands on time with some of their adorable shelter pets and making no-bake dog treats to feed to the shelter dogs. The birthday child and their guests can also Build-a-Pet, creating their own plush pet to take home, including an adoption certificate and a wishing heart. There is no maximum age for their parties—they’ve even hosted Sweet 16 and Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebrations.

Follow the San Antonio and Broward County Humane Societies cue and ask the team at your local shelter if they host parties—increasingly Humane Societies and SPCA’s offer similar programs.
