Training Opportunities for Youth
Working for Animals 101
Working for Animals 101 teaches young people about occupations in animal welfare and guides them to achieve personal goals. For five weeks, students come once a week to the shelter, rotating between departments. They learn the vital tasks performed daily by our staff. During the program, students assist our medical team with exams; co-train and create activities for animals; discuss social media with our communications team; and much more.

Due to the current public health crisis, the Maryland SPCA is not participating in the 2020 Summer at the Shelter program with Kids 4 K9’s Inc. Please contact Kids 4 K9’s if you’re interested in this year’s program: firstname.lastname@example.org | (443) 909-8817.
