The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society seeks to undermine cruelty and neglect and increase awareness about responsible pet ownership through the promotion of humane education and animal care. The complex topic of humane education is approached in two ways at the Ontario SPCA:

Humane Education Campaigns, which are aimed at educating the public and our Communities through targeted awareness campaigns.

Humane Education Programs, which are predominately geared towards youth to encourage and empower them to be a more informed, respectful and compassionate generation. Programming includes, but is not limited to, children’s camps, extracurricular programming and our elementary school curriculum, which is currently available for grades 1 -3.
