Humane Education

The Humane Society offers a variety of educational opportunities for young people to learn about animals and help the shelter pets.

Education Programs

Invite the Humane Society to your classroom

The Humane Society of Western Montana offers a variety of humane education presentations available to clubs, groups and classrooms in Missoula and Lolo . Topics include dog bite prevention, caring for pets, clicker training dogs, and more. The suggested donation is $20/group (not required) or students can coordinate a community service project and donate the proceeds to the shelter. We can also help your group develop a fundraising project. Email outreach@myhswm.org or call 549.3934 to schedule a humane education presentation.

Go behind the scenes at the Humane Society, get to know some of the shelter animals, and learn about all the Humane Society has to offer the community.
