Education for Our Youth
For nearly four years, we have been building a dynamic program of humane education lessons for our Petaluma and Penngrove schools. From a simple start of a few different lessons, we now offer fifteen classroom experiences, from dog safety to disaster preparedness for pets, to classroom experiments connecting dogs to wolves, to an experience of being a “vet” and figuring out a mystery disease. During the 2011-12 school year, we taught nearly 1500 local students in day classes, after school programs, Bible Camp and Girl Scout Troop settings. Not only are our lessons free of charge, but each one has been designed to meet State Teaching and Core Standards so that we provide a quality educational program that is fun for the student AND includes demonstration animals to help teach the concepts! Don’t miss this great opportunity! See how we combine learning + animals to give your students an engaging, educational experience.
