Parents and teachers, please call 804-521-1327 to schedule or click here to send an email for more information. Please note, some of these programs are on hiatus during Summer, for Critter Camp, and will resume in early September. We encourage your group to sponsor a pet food drive, a fund raising drive or some other project in conjunction with their visit.
- Summer Programs We have more programs than ever to offer in the summer of 2013. Offerings include options for children as young as 5 years up to age 18.
- Show Me the Way Home! Find out what to do if your pet gets lost and take a tour of the Richmond SPCA. Ideal for school groups, grades 5 to 8. One hour.
- Animal Care Grab Bag! Explore topics in animal care and tour the Richmond SPCA. Ideal for younger children from preschool to 2nd grade. One hour.
- Mystery Tour! See a behind-the-scenes tour that most kids and grown-ups never get to see! For grades 3 to 12 and their parents or teachers. Due to space restrictions the size of groups are limited. Please call to check availability. 1 hour.
- Dog Bite Safety Since children account for more than half of all dog-bite victims, this lesson will teach kids how to protect themselves around pets in their neighborhoods. We will teach them how to interact with animals safely, including their own pets, friends’ pets and strays. Ideal for school tours, grades K to 6.
- Animal Brigade Join our service club to help animals. An application is required. For middle school students in grades 6-8.
- Happy Birthday to You! A birthday party at the Richmond SPCA? Yes! We have games, decorations, invitations and party favors. We even let kids and friends play with the animals!
