Humane Education

Foster humane attitudes and behavior

The purpose of Clay Humane is the prevention of cruelty to animals, the relief of suffering among animals, and the extension of humane education.

Humane education, the catalyst of our work, continues to be of the utmost importance to us. Our school presentations, facility tours, publication and speaking engagements are just some of the ways that we educate the public. Through our exhibits at fairs and festivals, we can speak one on one about humane issues with our community members and answer any questions they may have.

Another effective way for the society to educate children in the community is with our annual poster contest. Have Society staff members give humane education presentations and handouts at your school, Contact us!

The poster contest is held for the 5th grade students and is offered to elementary schools countywide. Contact us for more information about how to sign-up. The theme of the contest relates to pet overpopulation and spay/neuter. The students are asked to design artwork illustrating the importance of this particular animal welfare issue. The winning design is featured on a billboard on Blanding Boulevard in Orange Park, FL during the month of January.
