Humane Education Programs

At the ARLGP, we believe that in teaching our community kids at a young age to be responsible pet guardians and advocates, we are ensuring animals will be humanely treated and cared for well into the future.

Our Humane Education offerings are centered around a curriculum of compassion and kindness and fostering empathy. Check out our current offerings below!

Humane Helpers

Our Humane Helpers program offers a comprehensive shelter experience that includes animal meet-and-greets (dependent on our shelter population) activities, shelter helper projects, and more. Learn more.

Birthday Parties

Celebrate your birthday in the most fur-tastic way! ARLGP birthday parties include two hours of programming and festivities in our humane education classroom. Learn more.

Unleashed Camps

For School Groups: Shelter Experiences & In-School Visits

Are you a local teacher/educator looking to teach your class about animal welfare? The ARLGP offers in-shelter experiences for groups to visit, meet animals, and participate in educational programming. Our educators also travel to local schools, to offer lessons and presentations in your classroom. Learn more.
