Participate in our Educational Programs

The Toledo Humane Society believes that respect for living things, including animals and people, begins with education. The THS Education Department offers a variety of single and multi-day programs designed to appeal to different age groups and interests. To accommodate the busy schedules of students, we offer educational opportunities after school and on Saturdays. Costs will vary from program to program.
