Scout Programs

Girl Scout and Boy Scout Nights

Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts are invited to visit the Wisconsin Humane Society for a fun-filled evening to learn all about animals and the work we do to find them loving homes. Make a cool cat toy, learn the basics of dog training, take a behind-the-scenes tour, and meet some furry and fuzzy guests! Included in your reservation is a resource guide with activity ideas to help you reach your goals for animals. Exclusive Wisconsin Humane Society patches are available for purchase at the time of registration.

Your visit on Girl Scout & Boy Scout Night has a direct connection to the Daisy’s “It's Your Story - Tell It!” 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals Journey, the Brownie’s Pets Badge, and the Bear Scout's Critter Care Adventure. If you have specific, animal-related goals that your troop is working toward, please let us know, as there may be additional resources we can provide.

Girl Scout & Boy Scout Nights are held from October through May.

Dog Care Merit Badge Clinic for Boy Scouts

Come to the Wisconsin Humane Society Milwaukee Campus to work on your Dog Care Merit Badge and have a howlin’ good time in the process!  Meet some sensational dogs, learn first aid basics, get the scoop on animal care and the basics of dog training, and more. Upon completion of the clinic, scouts will be able to sign off on eight of ten requirements of the Dog Care Merit Badge. 

Of the ten requirements for this badge, eight can be signed off on the day of the clinic. Due to the nature of requirements #4 and #5, they must be completed on your own. If you do these prior to the workshop and bring your documentation with you to the clinic, we can sign off on everything that day and you are done! If you complete the requirements after the clinic, you can coordinate with the Merit Badge Counselor to get your blue card signed.  

Although you are not required to have a dog to attend this workshop, a dog is required to complete requirement #4 and #5. Boy Scouts who are considering adopting a dog may want to attend to find out more about the responsibilities and care dogs require. You can attend the workshop and complete the requirements when you add a canine family member to your pack. You can also borrow a friend, neighbor, or family member’s dog for these requirements.  

2018/2019 Dog Care Merit Badge Clinics are offered on the following Sundays from 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.
