The Open Sanctuary Project’s Compassionate Care Classroom

What Is The Compassionate Care Classroom?

The Open Sanctuary Project’s Compassionate Care Classroom features innovative courses for sanctuary caregivers, volunteers, and anyone looking to build knowledge on important animal sanctuary topics. Consisting of carefully written lessons, photos, videos, and brief quizzes, our courses are peer reviewed by sanctuary experts, with sensitive medical issues given additional review by a qualified veterinarian with sanctuary experience, so you can trust what you learn. Our instructors will also be available to answer any questions you may have throughout the classroom experience.

Those who complete each course series will receive a unique Certificate of Completion!

You can get started with an available course below!

Do You Find The Compassionate Care Classroom Valuable? Consider Supporting Us!
If you’re interested in taking courses here at The Open Sanctuary Project, you likely know how difficult it is to come across reliable, compassionate animal care on the internet! It takes our dedicated team months to create and review each course that we provide for the global sanctuary community. If you have found our courses (or any of our content) helpful, please consider making a tax-deductible donation here! We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and we need your help to continue our mission! Thank you for your support!

More Courses And Species Are On The Way!
We plan on covering all major species covered in our resources, including cows, pigs, goats & sheep, turkeys, waterfowl, camelids, and more! However, these courses take substantial time to create and review, so follow us on social media or via our newsletter to stay informed as new courses are released!
