Youth Programs

We believe that a mind we help shape today is one who will help us create a better tomorrow, and that by teaching about compassion and empathy for all living beings to young people, we can prevent the needless suffering and abuse of animals for generations to come. At NCAL, we offer innovative ways for children and young people to become involved with animal welfare by giving them the chance to learn about and interact one-on-one with our animals.
