Animal Friends is a humane education program that teaches students to cultivate compassion and respect for the animals that share our world. We offer after-school classes and/or workshops to provide students a great opportunity to learn about proper animal care, respect for wild animals, and compassion and empathy for all animals. There are discussions, activities, and field trips, with many opportunities to spend time with and do good things for animals.
Some students will be designated “Animal Hero Kids” by the Animal Hero Kids Voices for the Voiceless organization when their time, efforts, activism, and advocacy extend above and beyond. These are students who are using their natural sense of compassion and critical thinking skills as a powerful force for change.
