Scout Groups

Scout Badge Program

Due to COVID-19 social distancing requirements we are not able to safely host in-person scout groups at this time. To inquire about options email us at

Be an Animal Guardian and earn your Louisiana SPCA Animal Guardian Badge! Your troop or den can visit us to learn how animal shelter work in the community and how you can help save more lives. During this workshop (grades 3 and up), your troop learn about animal welfare, tour our New Orleans campus and complete an activity to earn their Animal Guardian badge, only available at the Louisiana SPCA!

The cost is $10 per scout, with a minimum troop size of 5 and a maximum troop size of 20. If your troop is small, you may be paired with another troop of the same age.

Humane education reinforces character development skills such as kindness, compassion, empathy and responsibility. From caring for the family pet to taking action to prevent animal suffering, students become active participants in helping animals and others at an early age. Enhancing a student’s understanding that animals are living, feeling beings to be treated with respect and compassion is a very important lesson in empathy and respect for others. Educating the next generation about taking care of animals is important to our mission.

Looking for a way to add some fun into your meetings, birthday parties or other gatherings? Let us help with our virtual bark breaks!
