Humane Education

The Animal Welfare League's Humane Education Department offers a valuable experience in the magical world of animal. The goal is to provide children and adults with clear, informative presentations on  all living creatures. Our hands on presentations are age specific, ranging from preschool through high school levels. Animals are present during the classes and students are given the opportunity to meet the animals after the presentation. Classroom participation is encouraged throughout the presentation. Our information is delivered through a combination of interactive discussions, activities and audio visual materials. Pre and post materials are also available upon request to all educators and leaders.

Our education department teaches compassion and understanding for all creatures. Our humane educators attempt to create an awareness of domestic animal needs through offsite presentations as well as offering tours at the shelter for civic, scout and other organizations.

Although our humane education programs are free, we do recommend students get involved by collecting donations of desperately needed pet products that they can present to the shelter the day of the visit. Click Here for a list of items needed.

The Education Department also compiles information on a variety of animal welfare and animal rights issues. These are made available to anyone needing information for school projects and speeches.
