According to Dr. Sheryl Pipe at the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), "People who are more compassionate, more considerate to animals and respectful of their needs are the people who are more compassionate and more respectful toward other people."
Animal Care and Protective Services humane-presentations are scheduled for High-School and Adult Groups. The goal of our education presentations is teach the public empathy by instilling respect and responsibility for animals and their environment.
Our Pet Education Program is available free of charge. Please allow a 2-week notice for scheduling us to come speak; we offer presentations on Thursdays.
The City of Jacksonville is overpopulated with stray, unwanted dogs and cats.

Taking care of our pets and spaying and neutering them is a must!
