Scout Groups

The Girl Scout and Boy Scout workshop for 2nd grade and younger is an educational experience focusing on safety with animals and proper pet care. The Scouts then tour the adoptions area and complete a small art project. This is not a patch program. The cost is $5 per scout.

The Girl Scout and Boy Scout workshop for 3rd grade and up is a patch program that educates the scouts about the Louisiana SPCA, its importance in the community and what they can do to help our animals friends in need. The scouts will then perform a short volunteer service to earn their patch. The cost is $7 per scout.

Please email erica@la-spca.org if you have ay questions.
