Our Show and Tail Program consists of 30 - 60 minute presentations brought to you by our staff and volunteers. Presenters will bring their own dogs to act as demonstration dogs. These dogs have been temperament tested and health checked. Each presentation begins with an overview of the LA/SPCA, who we are, why we exist, and the services we provide.  Listed below are the topics we currently offer. If you are interested in requesting one of these important presentations for your students, please fill out this form. A humane educator will respond shortly.

We ask that you limit the group size to 30 students; you will be required to provide adequate supervision of your students to maintain order and safety. We look forward to arranging a visit to your school!
