Humane Education Programs

Anti-Cruelty offers a number of different Humane Education programs for audiences of all ages, each serving our mission of creating a community of caring. On-site presentations may be combined with an animal encounter and a behind-the-scenes tour of Anti-Cruelty. 

Pet Care Grab Bag is an educational and entertaining program for students and families which gives young children the chance to learn the basics of pet care as well as how to be safe around animals. Anti-Cruelty’s beloved puppet dog Muffin, along with her human handler, will teach children the three rules of how to greet a dog safely before diving into the Grab Bag in search of animal related items to learn all about the essentials of basic pet care.
