Badge of Hope

SF SPCA Badge of HopeThe Badge of Hope Program provides scout troops, school groups, clubs, and after school programs with the opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of the San Francisco SPCA's life-saving work while also learning about what they can do to help animals in their community.

Each Badge of Hope Program includes a special behind-the-scenes tour of our Mission Adoption Center and the Leanne B. Roberts Animal Care Center. After that, our Humane Educators will lead your group in a fun activity designed to encourage students to help animals. We'll end the program by meeting and learning about one of our Education Animal Embassadors.
