At HSHA, we recognize that humane education is a key facet to improve the current conditions and pave the future for the pets and people within our communities. Humane education promotes knowledge, understanding, skills, attitudes and values related to human involvement in the lives of animals. It can bring about beneficial changes in the treatment of animals at the hands of humans. At HSHA, we provide ample opportunities to facilitate such learning through services like the Book Buddies Program, guided shelter tours, presentations on responsible pet ownership, lesson plan generation to supplement teachers in their classrooms, and the Animal Exchange Program. Choose the corresponding link in the navigation menu at the top of this website to learn more about each program and service. Please keep in mind that these programs and services are appropriate for all age groups. YOU can change the world by educating yourself!
