Education

Humane education

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. Education Officers visit pre-schools and primary schools throughout the greater Cape Town area to give talks, show DVDs and present the SPCA’s Ani-Pal Education programme, which includes an interactive puppet show and classroom activity booklets.

School children from impoverished communities are encouraged to bring their pets for free sterilisation and parasite control as part of our Ani-pals education programme.

In 2007, the Cape of Good Hope SPCA’s Ani-Pal education programme was awarded top honours by the World Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (WSPA), which considered the animal welfare educational programmes from organisations in 90 countries.
