As part of its humane education efforts, the Ontario SPCA Barrie Branch’s Bite Free Program is offered through presentations to schools and community groups to help people appreciate, understand and care for animals. The program is designed to prevent animal bites by teaching children how to properly approach and handle dogs and cats. It also helps teach children about the humane treatment and care of animals.

If you are interested in learning more about the Bite Free Program, or having the Barrie Branch visit your school or event, please contact Melissa Bainbridge, at 705-728-7311 or by email at
