Ambassapets

The Humane Education team has a wonderful ambassapet program, which allows the team to bring out one ambassapet to a school or offsite visit. These ambassapets are staff or volunteer owned pets, and are all rescues. Bringing a pet, will depend on the lesson chosen (for example-no ambassapet comes out for Click and Learn class). We have a variety of ambassapets for visits at our shelters, but the pet chosen depends on the staff or volunteers availability, as well as the age group of the audience. See our current ambassapets below, and you might just meet one at our next visit!
