Youth Programs

Have Fun

Make a difference in the lives of animals in our community by getting involved in our programs and events. 

Show and Tail

The Louisiana SPCA Show and Tail youth program consists of a 30 - 60 minute presentation brought to you by our staff and volunteers. Presenters will bring their own dogs who are temperament tested and helath checked, to act as demonstration dogs. Each presentation begins with an overview of the Louisiana SPCA, who we are, what we do and the services we provide. Listed below are the topics we currently offer. If you are interested in requesting one of these important presentations for your students, please fill out this form.


We ask that you limit the group size to 30 students; you will be required to provide adequate supervision of your students to maintain order and safety. We look forward to arranging a visit to your school!


Responsible Pet Ownership: Grades K-4

Demonstrates the time and care required to properly raise a healthy, happy pet.  Includes a discussion on the importance of spaying/neutering and microchipping our pets. 

Being Safe Around Animals: Grades K-4

Discusses why animals behave the way they do, how they communicate, as well as how and when to properly approach both familiar and unfamiliar animals. 

Responsible Pit Bull Ownership: Grades 5th and up

This presentation educates students on the facts of the Pit Bull breed, how to be a responsible owner and how to help others become ambassadors for the breed.  Includes a PowerPoint presentation or video. 


For all Show and Tail presentations we bring a sociable canine friend for students to practice appropriate dog greeting procedures.  If you can not accommodate a pet, please let us know at the time of scheduling.
