Lunch 'n Learn
Allow DCHS to come and visit your business or organization through our unique Lunch 'n Learn program! Our Lunch 'n Learn business presentation encourages respect and responsibility amongst employees, both in and out of the workplace. It can also create positive communication and strengthen employee interactions. Plus, a nice break talking about animals never hurts morale! Some organizations have even offered this as a presentation for the whole family to attend.
Our hands-on activities and approach will not only benefit your employees within their professional life but also within their personal life. Our unique presentation will encourage respect, responsibility, compassion and empathy towards all living things. Our speaker will also discuss how to adopt and care for an animal, generate interest in volunteering and introduce you to the role DCHS plays in the community. We will even introduce you to a current member of our cause - one of our lovable adoptable animals. We also have an activity that encourages communication and patience in the workplace.
Programs typically last one hour, but can be modified to meet your needs. An accompanying PowerPoint presentation is included, plus handouts for attendees. Please allow Dane County Humane Society to offer our services and speak at your organization. Contact us today to set up your one-of-a-kind program.

Introducing a baby or young child into your home can be exciting and overwhelming and will change everyone's lives, including your "first" baby's. You may have the fear of your pets not doing well with children, or diseases such as toxoplasmosis, or worry about not having enough time to spend with your pet.
Baby-Ready Pets will help you prepare and answer these concerns. This class is designed to help prepare expectant parents and their pets for the arrival of the baby. We will focus on topics such as:
- Preparing your pets for new sounds, sights, smells, and schedules before the arrival of the baby
- Introducing your pet for the first time to your new baby
- Disease concern answers
- Identifying and addressing specific behavior issues.
Attend this program to learn how to prepare your pets and yourself for the new changes your baby will make in the household dynamic. We will also discuss safe and appropriate behavior for children to help them be respectful to their pets. We recommend attending class when you are 3 to 4 months pregnant.
With careful preparation and dedication the arrival of your baby can be quite successful!
