Humane education

Educating the community about animal welfare is at the core of our mission. We believe that the better educated we are about the animals in our midst, the more humane a community we can become.

Our education programs are designed for children, teens and adults, and promote respect for and understanding of animals with the aim of creating a more humane community. Children learn to approach animals safely, overcome fear of animals, and the importance of responsible pet care. Adult programs help pet owners better understand pet behavior and care, as well as a range of topics designed to help pet owners keep pets in their homes and out of shelters.
