SCAS Educational Outreach Program

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
Nelson Mandela

Second Chance’s Outreach Program assists the Shelter in accomplishing its vision of becoming “a model shelter, addressing the issue of pet over-population by providing solutions through services and prevention through education.” Second Chance’s Outreach Program provides education for all ages as a means of promoting animal care, animal responsibility, animal safety, and bite prevention.

Outreach presents programs to schools, libraries, church groups, senior centers, and other community groups. In addition to Outreach visits, tours of the shelter may be scheduled. The educational programs are adapted for kindergarten through adults. Programs are geared to specific participants and needs of the group. Topics covered include the responsibility of owning a pet, how to care for a pet, bite prevention, keeping animals safe, the importance of spaying and neutering and the role Second Chance plays in the community…including animal adoptions, pet food pantries, low cost spay and neuter, subsidized veterinary care and vaccinations as well as other services offered by Second Chance’s Wellness and Education Center.
