Request Humane Education Workshops

Learn how to lead activities that teach children how to treat animals with care and kindness.
NHES offers custom nationwide humane education workshops for elementary schools who want to incorporate humane education into their classrooms and animal rescues seeking to begin or expand humane education outreach programs in their own communities. Workshops are led by the NHES humane education team and may take place on-site at The NHES Campus or at your facility.




Attendees will learn how to lead youth activities that teach:

  • Socially Responsible Pet Ownership
  • The Value of Spay and Neuter and Pet Adoption
  • The Physical, Emotional, and Psychological Needs of Pets
  • Dog Bite Prevention
  • Empathy and Humane Treatment of Animals
  • Careers Helping Animals

Elementary teachers DSCN7673will learn ways to address these topics while simultaneously building students’ skills in reading, writing, art, math, science, and critical thinking. Humane education programs can complement a school’s existing character-development or anti-bullying program.

Staff and volunteers of animal rescue organizations will learn how to expand humane education in their communities. Our experienced humane educators will help your staff acquire the knowledge and tools they will need to develop a procedure for safe educational tours of your rescue, effective school presentations, and humane education camps.

Our workshops are not “one size fits all.” We work with the unique needs of each facility to make sure attendees get the most out of their humane education workshop. Please email for more information! You can also request a date for a workshop at no obligation via the contact request form below.
