As part of Animal Aid's commitment to ensuring that animals are treated with respect and compassion, we offer education opportunities to members of the public, local government, community groups and school groups of all levels. We can provide information on an array of topics including:
- Animal welfare
- Responsible pet ownership
- Animal desexing and microchipping
- Environmental enrichment for companion animals
- Introducing a baby into a home with established pets
- Dealing with common behavioural issues
Community education sessions may be held either at your premises or at Animal Aid in Coldstream. These sessions are designed to be delivered in one to two hour blocks and can include practical activities where possible. We have the flexibility to design and create educational materials or tailor sessions to suit your specific needs.
School & Community Group Visits
Animal Aid is always happy to open their doors and we welcome visits from schools and community groups throughout the year. If your school or group would like to visit the shelter, all you need to do is call and arrange a mutually convenient time and let us know what your special interest is in visiting the shelter.
Visiting Animal Aid is a great opportunity to see what is involved in the day to day operation of an animal welfare shelter. Your group will take a tour of our facility and see all the beautiful cats and dogs that are looking for new, permanent homes. After the tour the students will have a better understanding of how and why these homeless pets arrived at Animal Aid and the extra lengths that our staff and volunteers go to make sure they find loving families to call their own.
