Printouts & Activities

The Anti-Cruelty Society loves teachers! We work together with teachers to foster empathy and compassion, while inspiring the animal care professionals of the future. There are lots of ways that the Society can help teachers that are creating a community of caring.

Pet Visitation: A dog with Canine Good Citizen certification can visit your class to teach safety around animals or to just make everyone happy. Contact or (312) 644-8338 ext. 344 to schedule a visit.

Education Presentations: All offerings are available during a field trip to The Anti-Cruelty Society or we can send a Humane Education Specialist to you. From “Safety Around Animals” to “Animal Careers” and lots of fun in between, click here for a full list of our presentation offerings, to see which learning goals align, and to learn about options to “package” presentations to strengthen learning opportunities.
