The CARE Program is a series of three lessons that our educators teach in your classroom:
- Commitment (responsible pet care)
- Awareness (human impact and spay/neuter)
- Respect & Empathy- (pet body language/safety and respect for all living things)
The above lessons are taught through fun and engaging lessons and activities, and include a safe, educational animal interaction with each visit.
This is a unique program aimed at helping students learn about animal welfare, human rights, environmental protection, and social justice challenges in our community. The East Bay SPCA has created the CARE Program in an effort to eliminate animal cruelty, neglect and overpopulation by providing programs and education that support people and companion animals. This program not only brings animals to you, but the lessons are linked to California State Standards.
The cost for the CARE Program is $250 for the series of 3 visits to your classroom (maximum of 30 students per program).
SCHOLARSHIPS ARE AVAILABLE! Schools with over 75% of their student body eligible for the Free and Reduced Price Meal Program (FRPM) will be automatically awarded a full scholarship. Schools with less than 75% of their student body eligible for FRPM will be automatically awarded a partial scholarship that matches the FRPM percentage. FRPM percentages are determined using the most recently published statistics provided by California Department of Education.
We are now booking CARE Programs for the 2021/22 School Year.
