Why Humane Education?

At Berkshire Humane Society (BHS), we believe that it’s an important vehicle to learn not only about animals but also about ourselves. That’s why we offer several programs for both children and adults who love animals!

Every year, our humane education department reaches thousands of children through shelter tours, Camp Humane, the Humane Hero Program, the Explorers Program, and visits to local schools and groups. Underlying each program is the simple message of compassion, respect, and responsibility for all animals and people in and beyond our community. BHS also invites adults to participate in our Coffee Hour Speaking Series – a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon during the winter months.
