Can’t bring your students to us? We can bring the HSNEGA to you! The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia offers educational programs for classroom groups of all ages. Classroom programs are offered Tuesday through Friday, between 9:00AM to 3:00PM. No fee is required; however, we would greatly appreciate donations from our WISH LIST to support the animals of the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia. Program topics range from "Animal Talk," "Playing it Safe with Dogs and Cats," to "HSNEGA 101." All HSNEGA classroom educational programs are correlated to the Common Core Standards, Georgia Performance Standards, Academic Knowledge Skills, and lead by state certified educators. If you have specific goals for your classroom program or need to meet a specific classroom standard, please let us know and we will gladly customize our program to meet your needs. Take advantage of this great resource and schedule your classroom program today. For more information or to request a program, please contact our Education Coordinator at (770) 532-6617 or email KelleyUber@HSNEGA.org.
