Birthdays at Coastal

Looking for the perfect place for your animal-adoring child to have their birthday party? Look no further than Coastal Humane Society! We love having children who care about animals come and visit our shelter to celebrate their birthday and learn all about taking care of their animal companions. Your party will include a craft project for the animals or a game, a small educational presentation, and an opportunity to meet some of our adoptable pets.

Booking your Party

Space fills up quickly, so book early!  Your spot will be guaranteed with a non-refundable $50 deposit. Please book at least three weeks in advance.


All parties include 20-30 minutes for cake, food, and beverages provided by the parent or guardian. Food can also be delivered.


Please feel free to bring presents, but we’ll be so busy, the birthday boy or girl won’t have time to open them. Some children opt to collect toys, food, and supplies for our animals in lieu of gifts.
