SPCA Albrecht Center

199 Willow Run Road, Aiken

Established in 1935, the SPCA Albrecht Center for Animal Welfare has placed thousands of needy animals into loving homes. In September 2006, the SPCA Albrecht Center for Animal Welfare in cooperation with the Aiken County School District began a Humane Education Pilot Program for K-3 classrooms at four Aiken County elementary schools. This program focuses on teaching life skills and developing positive character traits in the children of Aiken County. Their goals are to:

  • Foster an understanding of the care of animals and what responsible pet ownership entails
  • Foster an understanding of compassion and empathy to encourage positive behavior
  • Foster an understanding of violence prevention and peaceful conflict resolution
  • Provide this program at no cost to the Aiken County Schools, and with no additional work for the classroom teachers
  • Augment the students’ existing reading, communication, and literacy skills through the use of lessons plans and materials that enhance these skills.

The program has been entirely funded by the SPCA Albrecht Center for Animal Welfare and local private donors. www.spca-albrect.org
