Humane Education

At the Humane Society of Macomb, we love animals and want to share that love with generations to come. Research has shown that humane education develops the steps necessary for empathy: recognize human and animal emotions, share emotions, and regulate emotions in order to connect in positive ways with others.

This is what we are here to do.

If you are are a teacher or a scout troop and are interested in having the Humane Society of Macomb join your classroom or provide a tour of our facility and humane education, please email our events team at

Sundays at the Shelter- 2020

A new program launching in October of 2020 is our small group Sundays at the Shelter.

Each Sunday the kids will meet our horses, goats, pigs and adoptable dogs and cats.

Guest speakers will provide education about the different animal groups and they will have an interactive hands-on experience at our facility.

In addition to meeting our animals, kids will have the opportunity to play socially distanced games and create crafts to take home or donate to the shelter. A snack and beverage will also be provided.

Summer Camps

Our camp program focuses on humane education lessons on many topics allowing animal-loving children to meet and interact with a variety of animals and learning about them. Activities are currently being planned for this year and will include pet photography, animal communication, wildlife conservation, and more. 

Children in our camps visit with adoptable animals each day and provide enrichment and training with shelter animals along with humane education lessons, art, games, and activities. 

Our camps for 2020 have concluded for the year. Stay tuned for our 2021 schedule to be released early in 2021.
