Humane Education

Humane EducationCompanion animals are a vital part of the healthy emotional development of children. Our humane education programs teach respect for all life using enriching activities and hands-on experiences. Children are able to explore and develop character traits like empathy, kindness, compassion, trust, respect, and responsibility, resulting in:

  • A stronger bond with animals, which is proven to create better human relationships
  • The desire to become a responsible pet guardian
  • A reduction in the number of animals that are abused, neglected, abandoned, or surrendered to animal shelters
  • A reduction in bullying and violence in families, schools, and communities
