Passionate About Animals Since 1840

Education

Our Education Strategy acknowledges that animal welfare education and learning for both children and adults will be essential to achieving our vision where every animal is treated with compassion and respect, making it socially unacceptable to mistreat and be cruel to any animal. Through our education services, we impact over 150,000 people each year and focus on promoting kindness and empathy towards animals. Our work includes:

  • On and off site school and college talks Shelter Tours
  • Transition year and 3rd level work experience programmes Projects, workshops and online education and training courses.
  • Children’s Camps
VIRTUAL EDUCATION

The DSPCA Education Department have put together a series of material which can be downloaded or viewed from the website as . As we can not come and visit groups and the Shelter is closed for tours we are are focusing more on Virtual Education. We can work with all ages of children and students and are happy to create an age/ability appropriate session tailored to your group’s interests.
