Education Tours & Talks - all are Welcome!

“Respect for life begins with concern for Animals”. At the SPCA, we believe education is an important means of cultivating an individual’s respect for life and love of animals, and helps raise an awareness of animal welfare issues. Our educational talks are designed so that participants can develop a concern for animals, learn about their needs and feelings, and give careful thought to their well-being. We believe that caring for animals encourages respect for humans as well. We can offer talks to teachers, students, youth groups and parent-child groups in both face-to-face and online format. Talk content will be chosen according to the age of the participants. You are welcome to join us on a tour and learn how to be a more caring and considerate person!

The programme is in two parts. The first is an educational talk. Participants will learn about the needs and feelings of animals, the responsibility involved in looking after pets and some of the wider aspects of animal well-being. In the second part, there is a tour of our adoption centre to visit cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters etc. which have been abandoned and are waiting for re-homing.

Online talk with live tour

Rundown :
The programme is in two parts. The first is an online educational talk. Participants will learn about the needs and feelings of animals, the responsibility involved in looking after pets and some of the wider aspects of animal well-being. This is then followed by a live tour of our Homing Department, which illustrates the sad situation many animals (dogs, cats, rabbits and hamsters, etc.) find themselves in when unkindly abandoned by their owners. We hope this will help visitors reflect on the current generally poor attitude of both the public and the community towards animals.
