SPCA Humane Education
*Page Under Construction! We Appreciate Your Patience!*
The SPCA Humane Education program, established in 1883, offers a variety of programs and services encouraging children and adults to develop and express attitudes of compassion, empathy, kindness, and respect for all living things while helping to build a safer, more compassionate community. Humane educators and volunteers teach more than 11,000 participants each year. Our goal is to help create a more caring community, while encouraging community members to recognize the significant relationship between humans, animals, and nature. If you are interested in volunteering for this important program, check out our latest volunteer needs here! (info coming soon)
