Our program also offers a series of educational talks to raise community awareness on animal care, protection and welfare.

③ Community Service

Our community service offers volunteers the opportunity to engage in activities at local stray animal shelters. Through these activities, we aim to raise awareness among students about the importance of animal rights and the treatment of stray animals. Students can also learn about the challenges facing stray animals in our community and how they can make a positive impact through their actions.

Upcoming opportunities:
Cat Shelter "Purr-fecting" Action 貓舍清潔大行動
In Step with Dogs 同步手牽狗


④ Student Training

We recruit and train a core team of students and staff to become therapy dog facilitators of animal-assisted activities.
