They had a cat area. The cats had cages but were allowed to roam pretty freely.
They had a small dog room. In this room was a mother dog with 2 week old puppies (my pictures didn't turn out too well) along with a few other puppies and just some small dogs. There was a dog in the front office who was wearing the "collar of shame" to keep her from licking or chewing at her injuries.
Then there was an area in the back with larger dogs and some runs outside. The larger dogs stay outside most of the day and come into their cages at night. In one of the cages was a dog recovering from an injured leg. He came out for a visit but then once he was back up, Gabe and a few other kids thought he needed some toys. At the end it looked like a toy store in his cage. :)
Gabe and Olivia both were very interested in the animals. Gabe liked the dog toys. Olivia noticed a sign that said dogs should only get 2-3 treats a day or they would become very fat. It showed a couple of pictures of excessively fats dogs. She really took this to heart and said she didn't want Sarah to get fat. We have currently cut back her food somwhat as she was getting overweight. It is Olivia's job to feed and make sure Sarah has water everyday.

The SPCA takes in a lot of kittens in the Spring typically. The lady said they use volunteers (even children) to come and bottle feed all the kittens. Hmm, that might be a fun experience for the kids and I. :)
