Also during the High Holidays, the Department of Humanistic Education of the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals provided educational activities for groups
During the High Holidays the Department of Humanistic Education of the SPCA ran educational activities for groups who enjoyed a guided tour of the Society and pampered the dogs who are awaiting adoption by taking them out for long walks.
Right after Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement) a group from “The Israeli Experience” – 25 young people from the US and Canada – visited the Society. They were given explanations about the work done by the SPCA, visited the cats’ home, saw the stables and expended a great deal of energy by taking the dogs out for walks. “These dogs are simply beautiful, I hope that they all find new homes very quickly”, said Yoni Friedman, while his fellow group member, Emma Fink, summed up the visit: “It was fun taking the dogs for a walk and playing with them. They are amazing, reminding me of the dogs who are waiting for me at home -and now I miss my dogs even more”.
During the intervening days of the Sukkot holidays, a group from a Tel Aviv parent-run vacation camp came to take part in an enjoyable educational activity in the Society. The kids enjoyed the direct contact with the animals and at the end of the day even raised a contribution for the animals.
We wish to express our appreciation to the group members and invite other groups interested in visiting the Society to call us at: *4553.
