Humane Education

Since its inception in 2004, the message of the Shelter’s Humane Education Program has been shared with over 3,500 children.  Shelter volunteers have visited elementary schools in the towns of Cohasset, Hanover, Hingham, Marshfield, Norwell and Scituate.  Schools are invited to contact us to schedule a presentation.  The program is suitable for children ages 6 – 8 and reviews the basics of pet care, safety around companion animals, the role of the Shelter in our community, and how children of all ages can help Shelter animals. Email us if interested in a visit!


The Shelter hosts Boy and Girl Scout Troop tours! Very similar to the school program, the tours have the added bonus of a guided walk-through of our facility as well as the opportunity to meet some of our residents.  For more information or to schedule a tour or presentation, please contact us at 781-544-4533!
