Children and youth are the future stewards of animal welfare. The Hamilton/Burlington SPCA (HBSPCA) helps them develop compassion and respect for animals while learning about shared responsibility and building leadership skills. In our humane education programs, children and youth engage with trained volunteers, skilled animal caregivers, and animal welfare experts.
