Animal Loss Support for Kids

The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society’s AnimalSmart™ program offers educational content to students to learn more about how to provide for our animals while showing them care, compassion and respect. During these times, we often find children seeking guidance and sharing their experiences with the passing of an animal.
