Be an Animal Guardian and earn your LA/SPCA Animal Guardian Badge! Come to the LA/SPCA and learn about an animal shelter’s function in the community and how you can help save more lives. During this Girl Scout and Boy Scout workshop (Grades 3 and up), your troop will get the chance to learn about animal welfare, tour the LA/SPCA, and complete an activity to earn their Animal Guardian badge, only offered at the LA/SPCA!
