Education Department

The CCSPCA Education Department is the Animal Center’s direct educational outlet to the community, both on and off CCSPCA property.  This department focuses on the importance of spay and neuter with an emphasis on the impact of pet overpopulation in the Central Valley.  Additional programs include humane education, animal law awareness, and dog bite prevention. Listed below are the different programs and services we offer.

Presentations/Assemblies

All Dogs Can Bite  The dog safety presentation is a quick reference to learning how to remain cool, calm, and collected when loose dogs approach us. In the process of learning how to be safe around dogs, attendees also learn how to be kind to animals.

Good Citizen Pets  Raising awareness about proper pet care and owner responsibilities involved with owning a pet is the key to becoming a humane community. It is in our best interest and the animals’ welfare, understanding what rights animals have and what responsibilities pet owners have.

Special Classes

Special classes will be offered on different animal related subjects open to the public throughout the year. Currently there are Free Dog Training Classes every Wednesday 6:00PM – 7:30PM and a Pet Loss Support Group offered the last Wednesday evening of every month. 

Tours

The tour provides an onsite presentation of the Central California SPCA organization by elaborating on its beginnings on forth to its present times. This organization has grown and saved thousands of animals throughout the years due to continual preventative programs. The CCSPCA prevents animal cruelty and neglect by means of outreach, adoptions, rescue, and low cost animal services offered to the public.

Event Booths

We can set up booths at any particular event to provide educational material and/or take a few of our adoptable animals to place into permanent homes. 

Volunteering

We provide an adult (18yrs+) volunteer program.  An application, orientation, interview, and training process must be completed in order to begin working on a volunteer basis at our Animal Center and/or with the animals. We’re always seeking volunteer Foster Parents.

Service Projects

Minors 17 years of age or younger can volunteer at our Animal Center through this program. We also offer Service Day Projects for interest groups/organizations that need or want to volunteer (i.e. Girl/Boy Scouts, company employees, clubs, church groups, etc.)

 

All these educational services offered by the Central California SPCA are FREE. Visits/Presentations can be accommodated onsite or offsite but must be scheduled. These services can also be given to a variety of groups: schools, private/public organizations, clubs, or held for special meetings in English or Spanish.
