OHS Animal Advocate Program

Do you know someone who has always wanted to work with animals after they graduate?

Don’t let them miss out on our exciting Animal Advocate Program this year!

On June 29, 2016 we welcome all youth (ages 12-15) to sign-up to participate in our interactive secondary school PD day programming. This is a great opportunity for youth who are interested in animal welfare to learn all about the OHS, the SPCA and a wide variety of animal related careers. At the end of the day each participant will receive an OHS Animal Advocate Certificate of Completion. In addition to a delicious pizza lunch, youth can look forward to the following activities throughout the day:

  • Behind-the-scenes tour of the OHS
  • Interaction and socialization with several OHS adoptable cats, dogs and small animals
  • Surgery viewing
  • Dog training demonstration and practice
  • Grooming demonstration and practice
  • Dog walking
  • Visits from knowledgeable OHS staff (i.e. Rescue and Investigations Agents, Veterinary Technicians, Canine Behavioural Specialists)

The program runs from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., and registration is $60.
