2021 MSPCA Virtual Summer Sessions

Time:   |   Location:

This summer, join the MSPCA for our NEW virtual summer sessions!  Each session will focus on a fun topic with an animal theme!  From learning how to care for a guinea pig to discussing ethical questions involving animals, participants will be able to ask questions, meet animals and learn something new!  Sessions will be held mornings on Tuesdays, Thursdays and select Saturdays (additional afternoon sessions will be added with interest).

Topics are designed for specific age groups; sessions for younger participants may include crafts and activities, too!

  • Sessions will be hosted through the Ring Central virtual meeting platform.
  • Participants will need to download the Ring Central app prior to participation.
  • Each session is available at a cost of $15 with that money going to support the adoption center and our programs.
    • Financial aid may be available for those that can demonstrate need (please contact bostonhumaneed@mspca.org for more information).
    • Sessions are non-transferable and non-refundable so please be sure to check the topic and date when you register.
  • Participants can register for as many sessions as they would like via the “register now” button below.
  • Once registered, participants will receive an email 2 weeks prior to the session with a link to the session as well as information on any other materials that will be needed.
  • New topics and sessions will be added throughout the summer!

Interested in participating but times don’t work for your schedule?  Email bostonhumaneed@mspca.org and include the name of the class, age group and preferred day of the week and time (Tue/Thu/Sat only).  We will be adding additional sessions with enough interest!

Please email bostonhumaneed@mspca.org with any questions!  We can’t wait to “see” you!
