Humane Education

At the Connecticut Humane Society, we believe that humane education is the key to the prevention of cruelty and neglect of animal companions. CHS offers opportunities for children and adults to learn about the importance of responsible pet ownership and care. Most programs also include a service component. It takes a community working together to make our world a better place for animals. 


Tours and Visiting Speakers 

Does your group want to learn more about the Connecticut Humane Society? Are you interested in learning how your group can make a difference for pets in need? Schedule a group tour at one of the Connecticut Humane Society’s Pet Wellness and Adoption Centers and see firsthand how CHS is making a difference for animals in need. Or request a speaker to visit your group for a presentation about how CHS plays a vital role in providing animal welfare services for the people and pets of Connecticut. Visiting speaker programs are tailored for either adults or teens.
