LIMITED SPACE: Ages 6 – 8!

A unique learning experience for children with at least one thing in common: THEIR LOVE FOR ANIMALS! Children will learn about a variety of animal-related topics while meeting and interacting with cool animals, learning to understand and appreciate the unique bond we share! Register children for one day, two days, or all days by clicking the image below! 

We’re hearing from more creative kids in Buffalo!

From SPCA Humane Educator Katherine: “We had two groups of students from the Charter School of Applied Technology (CSAT) visit us in March for their visual arts class. They took photos of the animals and made them into posters promoting adoption!”

Thank you to Digital Arts Teacher Lauren at CSAT for sharing this impressive work, and thanks to the students for helping us picture our beautiful animals in such a unique, contemporary way!

We’re celebrating #ReadAcrossAmerica Day at the SPCA Serving Erie County, and our Humane Education Department staff found a way to help children celebrate too!

Check out this list of recommended reading, 40 books for children of all ages with humane themes, hand-selected by members of the SPCA’s Humane Education Department! The books focus on pet adoption, pet loss, animal rescue, caring for animals, animal adventures, and more!

If your child loves reading, don’t forget to check out the SPCA’s Tale for Two program allowing children to read to shelter animals! Details here >>

And if your child’s library is a little sparse, mark May 2 – May 7, 2022 in your calendar! That’s the day the Scholastic Book Fair returns to our 300 Harlem Rd., West Seneca shelter…with online purchase opportunities available too! Details coming soon!
