About Humane Education

spcaLA’s Humane Education Department is pleased to be able to offer a variety programs to the Los Angeles community and beyond.

What is Humane Education in animal welfare?
Humane Education serves the community as a long term strategy for large scale change and improvement in the quality of animals’ lives. We do this through prevention and intervention programs that are designed to help create and sustain a culture of empathy and compassion by shaping moral development and instilling positive attitudes towards animals.

The main goals of Humane Education are to decrease both animal cruelty and interpersonal violence. This is accomplished by focusing on changing the root of the problems to help end the cycle of violence, which results in a better world for both people and animals.
