Protect your pet. ShelterCare Pet Insurance Programs

CHAT Club is an educational club for children ages 7-15 at the Capital Area Humane Society. Meetings provide members with the opportunity to get involved with the animals at the shelter through animal handling (puppies, kittens, dogs, cats, and pocket pets), lessons about animals, and responsible pet ownership and fun activities.

Sign up for CHAT Club today! Registration forms are available below or at the shelter. Parental permission forms will be sent.

CHAT Club fee is $30, payable on or  before the first meeting. The cost for a CHAT Club tee shirt is $10. Club tee shirts are required and can be used throughout the year.

New member orientation will be held the first day of the new term. Please arrive by 4:15 p.m. on this day.

Parents do not need to attend the meetings, but are expected to pick their children up by 6:45 p.m.
