“I would highly recommend this camp to my friends, because it’s a great opportunity to expose children to animals at our local animal shelter. This camp has also exposed my child in the various volunteer opportunities for her at SPCA. It has deepened her interest in animals.”
Since our early years as this community’s safe haven for stray and unwanted animals, PHS/SPCA has emphasized education. In fact, we were among the first humane societies, nationwide, to establish a humane education program and hire staff specifically for this vital work. While our Humane Education Department directs and delivers a range of programs, we consider employees from all departments - adoption counselors, officers, behaviorists and veterinarians - to be educators.
