PODCAST (14:09) — Leonor Delgado is Education Manager for the Palo Alto Humane Society and on 3/29/20 she was interviewed by co-host Josh Stephens about community humane education, creating humane kids, and what an advocacy organization founded in 1908 does besides run a shelter — which her group gave up in 1970.
They discussed three focus areas for the group. These are operating what amounts to a pet advice hotline, paying for vet care and spay/neuter for needy animals, and a range of community education programs that she would be happy to share with other groups and communities.
PAHS has a number of interesting, well-proven, and repeatable programs that can be adopted by other animal advocacy and welfare groups and even individuals. One of these is a writing contest for 7th and 8th graders that is currently underway.
The group supports many cat programs and is often called upon to help with orphan kittens, trap-neuter-return, and other feline challenges.
