Souris Valley Animal Shelter is once again busy in the schools with the Humane Education Program. The purpose of this vital program is to educate children on the importance of responsible pet ownership. Various areas of pet care are discussed including veterinary care, feeding, grooming, bedding, exercising, dangers in your home and loving your pet.

Each year a new presentation is given, whether it’s a puzzle, where each piece represents a different aspect of pet care or a rousing game of Bingo. All games are educational in nature and designed to be not only fun, but leave the children feeling as though it is fun to be responsible pet owners!
