Humane Education

A.D.O.P.T.’s Humane Education program offers children of all ages the opportunity for hands on experiences to learn about our shelter, the animals we help and the important issues in animal welfare today.

The purpose of our Humane Education program is to provide a variety of unique learning experiences that support the bond between people and animals by nurturing knowledge, compassion and respect toward all living things.
