Humane Education

Inspiring compassion for animals, people and the environment.

Humane Education

The Alberta SPCA education program promotes humane education – an approach to teaching that inspires compassion for animals, people and the environment – every living thing.

Our program is primarily geared towards teachers from K-12. We offer ideas, resources, activities and programs aimed to build empathy, increase awareness of animal needs and foster a sense of responsibility.  

The education program is developed and run by teachers. We are committed to aligning our resources with the Alberta Program of Studies to facilitate the inclusion of humane education while meeting curricular outcomes.

Land Acknowledgment

The Alberta SPCA respects the deep foundational connection Indigenous Peoples have had to animals and this land, now known as Alberta, for thousands of years. We are grateful to continue to work towards the humane treatment of all animals in all areas of the province on the traditional territories encompassed by Treaties 6, 7, 8, 4, & 10 and the Métis Homeland.  

We are inspired by how many Indigenous Peoples recognize animals, people and the environment are interconnected and that respecting these relationships is fundamental to the well-being of all living things and the Earth that we share. As treaty people, we also strive to listen, respect, care for, and live in harmony with one another, animals and the natural world.
