The Humane Society for Southwest Washington shelters between 10,000 and 13,000 homeless and abused animals every year but the work we do for the animals and our community extends far beyond the doors of our animal shelter. Through our Humane Education and Outreach programs, we help raise awareness about local and national animal welfare issues and use hands-on, engaging programming to foster a well-educated community that strives to treat all animals with compassion and respect.

We offer a variety of Humane Education and Outreach programs, many of which utilize very special animal ambassadors; so that we may best accommodate the needs of our community. From summer camps to classroom presentations and facility tours, our programs are designed to engage participants while reinforcing lessons of compassion, kindness and respect.

Please take a moment to read through the current Humane Education and Outreach offerings below. Because our programs vary seasonally, be sure to check back frequently for updated information about our programs and services.

If you have a question regarding our Humane Education and Outreach programs, please call or email Sam, Outreach and Strategic Partnerships Coordinator, at or (360) 213.2626.
