Hands-on learning

Delve into the world of the Humane Society for Southwest Washington with Humane Academy! This exciting program provides an in-depth exploration of what it takes to operate the largest adoption center-shelter in SW Washington.

From animal care and training to shelter operations and service projects, Humane Academy offers a high-impact educational experience for youth in grades 7-8. Students are guided by our staff and partners and encouraged to engage in a number of educational experiences through this program. It's a great opportunity for kids interested in becoming teen volunteers to learn more about  the world of HSSW and make a difference in the lives of the animals in our care.

Thank you to program sponsor, Beaches Restaurant and Bar
