Our humane education programs teach respect for all life using enriching activities and hands-on experiences.
At Valley Humane Society, children explore and develop character traits like empathy, kindness, compassion, trust, mindfulness, 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
Thanks, Meredith! We have decided to continue volunteering at the shelter while also focusing on creating Pet Emergency Kits for community members. The Kits will allow community members to help pets in case of evacuation, medical emergency, or finding a stray animal.
We have identified several causes:
Ignorance of responsible pet guardianship, including spaying/neutering, regular vet care, and keeping pets indoors (or on leashes).
