The educational mission of PAWS humane is to build a more compassionate community by teaching kind, compassionate and responsible pet care to our youth and general public. Caring for homeless animals and strengthening the human-animal bond begins with our commitment to education.
Every year we visit local elementary schools, sowing the seeds of compassion, by teaching responsible pet ownership and safety around animals. The youth of our community learn the joy of giving and helping others in need.
Humane education involves several concepts, including:
- Responsible pet care
- Empathy toward all living things
- Fostering kindness and respect
- Cruelty and neglect prevention
- Dog-bite prevention
- Pet-overpopulation issues
PAWS Humane is happy to visit classrooms, scout troops, and other clubs or youth groups to give presentations about age-appropriate animal welfare issues. If you would like to have our Volunteer/Community Outreach Coordinator visit your school, church or activities club, please call (706) 565-0035, ext 234.
