Guided Tours – Boston Adoption Center

megs-class-outsideWe offer guided tours to groups of various ages, from lower elementary students to senior citizens. Our staff and volunteers can tailor tours to meet the needs of individual groups.

What’s included in the tour?  Tour guides share information with visitors about the history of the Boston MSPCA, the programs offered on-site, as well as basic pet care tips, interesting animal facts, and suggestions for helping animals in our communities. Visitors will be guided through a number of adoption rooms and areas, viewing our available rabbits, cats, dogs and other small animals.

When are tours offered and how long do they last?  Hour long guided tours are available year round during staffed hours.

Do you have special tour programs for Girl Scouts?  Yes, we have special tour programs for Girl Scouts who are working toward a special badge or service project.  Whether a Daisy, Brownie, Junior, or Cadette, we offer a fun program that teaches the importance of responsible animal care and supporting those who are less fortunate.  Scouts can even purchase a special MSPCA fun patch at the end of their visit!

Is there a cost for the tour?  Because the MSPCA receives no state or federal funding, we depend on the generosity of our supporters to cover the cost of care for our animals. We request a $5 donation per person for our guided tours. Financial assistance is available. Many groups also plan a donation drive prior to their tour to collect blankets, toys, food and other items to give to the animals at the adoption center, a copy of our Wish List is available here if your group would like to bring donations with them for the animals.

How Do I Schedule a Tour?

Please email us to see if we can arrange a tour time for you. Let us know a little bit about your group including the age group of the visitors and the number of people in your group, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible with available dates and times. Tours must be scheduled several weeks in advance to assure tour guide availability.  Most tour groups are capped at 20 visitors.
