Animal Advocates Program

The Louisiana SPCA has many ways for young animal lovers to get involved at our shelter. The Animal Advocates program provides great ideas on how you can make a difference in the lives of animals. We have guides for fundraising and donation drives, instructions for donations you can make yourself, and our Animal Advocates Program to get kids and teenagers involved in promoting the well-being of animals in our community. These programs are adaptable, and can be used in classrooms, Scout groups, and individual families. Students can also earn service hours through these programs. Read below to find out more about each program.
