The SPCA Albrecht Center’s Marr Training and Education Center is is a training center for our shelter dogs and also used for Humane Education. We welcome opportunities for members of the public to use for Humane Education for the benefit of the animals. For example, the Education Center is used for field trip educational opportunities for schools.
