The staff of Animal Services has made humane education a high priority.
Promoting the proper care and treatment of animals is a cause that employees stress to people when adopting. Tips such as proper feeding and exercise as well as ensuring pet owners check the health of their pets, are heavily stressed.
On a regular basis children are visiting the shelter. With the help of The Animal Mission, thousands of school children participate in our humane education program. Through visits to their classrooms or by visiting the shelter on field trips, students are shown an educational video and visit with the many cats and dogs.
Interested children are also encouraged to volunteer their time at the shelter to further learn about animals.
