Students can be a voice for animals! We are hosting a series of after-school workshops at the Nelson SPCA for youth ages 12 to 14 (born 2004-2006). The workshops will run from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. on three consecutive Mondays (subject to interest from a minimum number of attendees). Sign up for a single session ($25), or save money by registering for all three sessions ($60).
- January 21

- February 4
Students will learn about topics such as animal care, animal welfare issues, how to speak up for animals and how to be leaders for younger students in our youth programs. They will also meet some of the adoptable animals in care at the shelter and learn about what we do.
Questions? Please contact Stephenie Campbell.
Please note: Our programs focus on educating youth about animals through fun and engaging activities. Kids will get a shelter tour and some time with approved suitable animals. When available, kids will also interact with behaviourally evaluated dogs owned by staff or guest speakers (not shelter dogs). Kids will not be cleaning cages or working directly with the animals during the workshop.
