Humane Education Virtual Presentations

Humane Education is great way to empower people of all ages by engaging them with programs that range from animal care & protection, environmental preservation, interpersonal relationship building, to human rights. We seek to provide educational opportunities and experiences that support the development of a strong community,  passionate about animal welfare.

Supporting the health and wellness of animals and people, we are excited to offer the following virtual presentations to connect learners with the Edmonton Humane Society while respecting physical distancing.

While our youth programing has moved to virtual, we are still offering canine behaviour consultations by appointment and and adoptions through our modified process.
