Youth Programs & Education
Teaching the next generation about animal care
The Sandton SPCA is actively involved in providing opportunities for animal education and community engagement. Our goal is to promote empathy, kindness, respect, and responsibility towards all animals.
Our Education Program consists of the following key engagements:
We believe that humane education is fundamental in teaching people to respect and care for animals. Throughout the year, our Education Team teaches school children about responsible pet care, animal welfare principles and the goals and mission of the SPCA. School children from impoverished communities are encouraged to bring their pets to the Sandton SPCA for free sterilisation and parasite control as part of our education programme.
We welcome schools to visit our kennel facilities at the Sandton SPCA to learn first-hand what our organisation is about.
School Community Service Opportunities
We welcome learners needing to complete their School Community Service assignments. School Community Service at the Sandton SPCA is supervised by a staff member or trained adult volunteer. Only specific dates are scheduled for pupils to do their community service.
