Learn More About Our Community Education Programs
Our community education programs are free* to participants and designed to promote kindness and appropriate treatment of animals. We offer a variety of topics appropriate for elementary schools, special needs groups, and youth organizations through our Volunteer Speakers Bureau. Our goal is to encourage respect and compassion for animals.
