Exploring Animal Careers

Investigating ARC

For teens interested in working with animals

Did you know there are more than 100 different jobs at Animal Humane Society? It's true! There are so many different ways you can contribute toward the care of animals and building a more humane community.

This new program teaches students about some of the jobs that are part of the landscape of the animal welfare industry. Participants will gain insight into the inner-workings of Animal Humane Society, hear from guest speakers, assist in our Vet Center and more. Plus, we will have games, crafts, and hanging out with animals.
