Humane Education

Building a healthy partnership between children and their pets


Happy Tails is a humane education program for animal organizations and all about saving animal lives, keeping kids safe, and preventing animal cruelty. This "early" humane education program is uniquely geared for ages 5-8 and provided at no cost. Our Love Me Gently book donation program is a great way to help families with the transition of bringing a pup home by including a free copy in adoption packets.
