LIVE! at Anti-Cruelty

Calling all classrooms, community groups, and youth clubs! Are you looking for an engaging activity for your group to learn more about animals and animal welfare? Look no further than LIVE! at Anti-Cruelty. 


This unique virtual program offers a behind-the-scenes look at some of the important facets of the work we do to help people and pets at Anti-Cruelty. 

Tune in from your computer or other device as we show you different areas of our River North facility together with an Anti-Cruelty staff member in this guided tour. Every day is a little different at an animal shelter, and we look forward to exploring topics such as:  

  • The different aspects and departments of an animal shelter 
  • How learning to read animal body language helps both people and animals  
  • Why communicating with others is important when caring for pets 
  • The different ways Anti-Cruelty helps both animals and people
