The Carl W. Nelson Animal Shelter believes in fostering the humane treatment of animals through community education.  We have developed age-appropriate humane educational presentations to take to private and public schools, scouting groups, 4H Clubs, and other community groups.  Our topics include safety around animals, pet owner responsibility, tips on choosing a pet, and the importance of spaying and neutering.  If you are interested in having a shelter representative speak to your group contact:
