Community Education

Promoting humane attitudes towards people, animals and the environment.

The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society is pleased to offer humane education programs for people of all ages. Whether it be on- or off-site, we are committed to offering our services to the public.

 

On-Site Programs

The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society is dedicated to educating the public about its role in animal welfare in our community and suggesting ways you and your group can help homeless, neglected and abused animals of the Capital Region. Note: the Humane Society is not a peanut-free facility.

Telling Tails

Telling Tails is a volunteer program for children ages 5-17. Participants can sign up to come read to the adoptable animals at MHHS on Wednesdays and Sundays between 3:00-5:00 pm. Reading to animals can boost the confidence of children, provide enrichment for the pet and help pets become more comfortable around people.
