The GBHS PAWsitive Education Program seeks to provide an interactive educational experience that teaches human education and supports the GBHS mission with educational lesson plans, activities, and projects.
Lesson plans focus on subjects such as:
Proper pet care
Pet behavior and bite prevention
The role that GBHS plays in the community
Careers with animals
Being kind to people and animals
Adoption Center Tours
The staff and animals love when students come to visit the facility to say hello and learn about the shelter! Students and other civic groups from around the Birmingham Metro area are encouraged to visit the GBHS for guided tours that touch on the mission of the GBHS, “to promote humane treatment of people and animals through education, advocacy, and services.” Tours usually take 30-45 minutes, depending on the size and ages of the group.
