Larimer Humane Society is excited to offer educational presentations to schools, scouts, and seniors, as well as community and faith-based organizations. Our humane education presentations closely align with our mission, which is to further the compassionate, safe, and responsible relationship between animals and people.
If your group is interested in having one of our humane educators visit your school or group, please contact our community relations department at 970-226-3647 ext. 146 or via email.
We do not charge a fee for our presentations, however, we do ask that each participant considers a donation to support our lifesaving work, or perhaps provide an item from our Wish List. We also request that you give at least two weeks notice for tours and presentations.
A complete list of our current presentations are listed below:
Introduction to Larimer Humane Society
Through this presentation, participants will be introduced to Larimer Humane Society – its vision, mission, programs and services. Additionally, participants will learn the role our shelter plays in the community and how individuals can become involved to help the homeless, ill, injured and orphaned domestic animals in Larimer County.
Animal Communication & Dog Safety
Did you know six in 10 children will be bitten by a dog by the time they turn 12? We can keep ourselves safe - and tell a lot about how an animal is feeling - by how it looks, moves or positions its body. Through this presentation, participants will learn common animal body language; the various ways that companion animals communicate that they are comfortable, relaxed, scared or angry; and why it is important to understand animal communication for personal safety. Special focus is placed on recognizing a dog’s body language, how to approach and meet a friendly dog, and how to react when a dog approaches you.
Supplemental Information (can be added to either presentation):
