"If we are to save the animals and ultimately this planet, then we must start by educating the hearts and minds of children."
Our commitment to animals goes beyond our day-to-day shelter operations. We have pledged to provide the best possible life for domesticated animals in our community. The Humane Society's commitment involves teaching and training citizens to provide for the welfare of their pets.
Commitment implies ongoing investment for the future. When we show children how to be responsible and compassionate, they become empowered to practice good behaviors and make positive choices, thus growing into caring adults who are committed to their pets.
Our Humane Education programs encourage an understanding of the need for compassion and respect for people, animals, and the environment and recognize the interdependence of all living things.
