Tours of Young at Heart's adoption center, "Smokey's Haven" are now available, but must be reserved in advance. Because we strive to provide our senior pets with a stress-free environment, touring opportunities are limited as strangers walking through their home can be quite stressful for them.
Tours are limited to six people total so that you and our pets can have an enjoyable visit together. Your tour will start with a short presentation on Young at Heart and rules for safety as you tour the adoption center. We will tour both dog and cat areas and will allow for some time to sit with the pets. Each tour will last about 30 minutes and will conclude with a question and answer period.
Tour times scheduled are the only times available for visiting with the dogs and cats (unless you have an adoption appointment) and for touring the facility. We cannot accommodate walk-in tour requests at other times.
Reservations require a donation of $25 per person. Your donation is non-refundable and is required so that we can be sure to have staff or volunteers on hand to accompany you. Your donation also helps support the senior pets in our care. The maximum size per tour is six people. There is no need to arrive more than five minutes prior to start time for your tour.
Visitors must wear closed toe shoes. We also recommend long pants.
Children under the age of 8 years old will not be allowed on the tour. Children must remain with their parents at all times.
