Classroom Visits

General information

To ensure the health and well-being of the animals in our care and the community we serve, the Sacramento SPCA is closely monitoring group event recommendations in response to COVID-19.
With those recommendations in mind, we have decided to cancel all in-classroom visits. Please contact us for virtual opportunities available at education@sspca.org Classroom presentations and virtual field trips are available Thursdays and Fridays.

We offer presentations for classrooms and after school programs for students Pre-K through 12th grade.  For our youngest students (Pre-K/Kindergarten), we offer an interactive presentation around the topic of dog safety, bite prevention, and how to take care of pets.  

For grades 1-5, we offer a series of 3-5 classroom visits based around the Red Rover Readers Curriculum.  Using a literature-based approach, these visits engage students in discussions designed to facilitate empathy development.  To learn more about how this program aligns with California Academic Content Standards, click here.

For older students we offer presentations on a range of topics including pet overpopulation, responsible pet ownership, and careers with animals.  These presentations are customized to meet the needs and interests of your group.

Presentations are available Thursday and Friday and run approximately 45 minutes.  To schedule a presentation, contact our Education and Outreach Coordinator at education@sspca.org.
