Community Education Opportunities
We help children in the metro-Atlanta area understand the importance of pets and how their actions might affect pets. Our outreach efforts can span grade levels from elementary to high school. We can accomodate small groups (up to 30) at the center for tours and educational lessons, or alternatively we can come into your school and make a presentation. In either event, please provide as much notice ahead as possible so that we can plan a presentation that will best benefit the children.
Some examples of past presentations include:
To discuss how we can assist in helping kids earn scout badges such as the Brownie Pets Badge, Junior Girl Scout Animal Habitats Badge, and Boy Scout Dog Care Merit Badge, Contact the Georgia SPCA. It is recommended these programs be conducted at the center in order to include a shelter tour with animal petting. In addition, if you are looking for a project that your scouts can participate in we have lots of great ideas!
We are very interested in developing partnerships with organizations in the metropolitan Atlanta area that are concerned about issues including pet overpopulation, animal adoption, animal abuse, and community education.
