Humane Education Programs

Ontario SPCA Humane Education Mission: By utilizing the bond between animals and children, the Ontario SPCA is dedicated to providing leading edge education involving our environment, the animal kingdom, community and social justices to empower youth to become a more informed, respectful & compassionate generation.

The Ontario SPCA identifies humane education as one of its priorities and as such we aim to support this by being actively involved in our community through the promotion of humane education.

Education is one of the key ways that we can prevent cruelty. It helps ensure that all animals receive the respect that they deserve and allows them to be a positive and helpful addition to our lives, families and communities.

Humane Education seeks to undermine cruelty by inviting individuals to explore their connections with their environment, other cultures, other species and the planet.

Our dynamic, thought-provoking programs encourage participation and critical thinking by combining experiential education and key messages to teach participants how to live compassionately.
