OFF-SITE PROGRAMS

Our one-hour off-site presentation is designed to foster a better understanding of companion animals and their ethical treatment. It will include a dynamic PowerPoint presentation followed by some time with shelter animals (depending on the availability of suitable animals). Though we specialize in school programs from elementary to university level, the EHS also provides interactive presentations for many other groups and organizations including, Scouts and Guides, daycares, children’s camps, libraries, retirement care, and many more.

An additional $50.00 (GST incl.) charge will be added to the cost of the presentation for organizations or schools that are located between 35 km to 70 km from the shelter. Programming will not be offered to locations further than 70 km away from the shelter.
