Little Paws Storytime


Designed for children ages 2 to 5, our story time programs include animal-themed stories, fingerplays, crafts and the opportunity to meet some of our adoptable animals!

Where: HSHV’s Education Center (3100 Cherry Hill Rd, Ann Arbor, MI 48105)

Who: Kids age 2 to 5 years

Fee: $5 per child, up to two adults/children under the age of 1 are free. Simply pay at the door (We accept cash, check, or credit card)

Registration: No pre-registration is needed, but please know we do have a space limit of 20 children. 

Time: Thursdays 10:30-11:30 a.m. (60 minutes). To keep distractions to a minimum for our young learners, doors will close at 10:45 a.m. Families arriving after that will be asked to wait in the vestibule until our doors open to the public at 11 a.m.

There are no Little Paws Storytimes scheduled in the summer. Story times will resume Thursday, September 13th.
