The Anti-Cruelty Society has been committed to caring for animals and the community since 1899. They provide a wide variety of services and resources such as an adoption program, a low-cost spay/neuter clinic, a rehabilitation & treatment center, a low-income clinic, humane education/community outreach, cruelty and abuse investigations and rescue, dog training classes, a free behavior hotline, and pet visitations. Now they are even offering a Humane Education Open House.
During the Open House, a live spay/neuter surgery will be showcased in real-time via webcam right in their auditorium. The Anti-Cruelty Society (TACS) has a brand new spay/neuter veterinary clinic. They are opening it to the public. It will feature a webcam above a surgery table to be used as an educational tool to display TACS mentoring program students, and any other students, how a surgery takes place.
This veterinary mentoring program is just one of the many educational programs that The Anti-Cruelty Society’s Humane Educators head up. This is the biggest reason that they are extending and open-ended invitation and encouraging teachers, teens, families or anyone that loves or advocates for animals, to attend the Open House next Sunday, September 15th between Noon and 2:00 p.m. By attending the Open House, you will be able to learn more about what TACS has to offer to the community in order to benefit the future generations of people and animals again by Building a community of caring by helping pets and educating people.
The Society has had humane educators on their staff since the 1930s. They reach more than 15,000 people each year through their community outreach programs. Most of the programs are completely free of charge; most are for school children. There are also three different juvenile detention facilities being served as well as summer camps, museums, and assisted living facilities.
In order to attract as many individuals as possible, TACS is offering all attendees the opportunity to mingle with their humane education team. They will also have the chance to enjoy face painting, giveaways, tours and pizza donated from Gino’s East.
This event is one that you will not want to miss. It will give you a knee up on others not fortunate enough to be able to attend. The initial viewers will get the low-down on what is to come from The Anti-Cruelty Society, otherwise known as the SPCA of Illinois, located at 157 West Grand Avenue in Chicago. Mark your calendars now for next Sunday. You will be glad you did!
