"If we are to save the animals and ultimately this planet, then we must start by educating the hearts and minds of children." - author unknown
Our mission to build a compassionate society where animals are cared for and valued extends beyond our day-to-day shelter operations. When we show children how to be responsible and compassionate, they are empowered to set a positive example.
Our wide variety of humane education programs – from classroom programs to tours to day camps - encourage respect for people, animals, and the environment, and recognize the interdependence of all living things.
