OUR MISSION:  To save the lives of animals, while changing the lives of children.

WHAT WE DO:  Tails That Teach is a non-profit organization that strives to educate young children life lessons of kindness, compassion, and empathy by bridging the connection between people and animals. Our compassion-centered early education programs empower kids to be responsible for their actions and to respectfully care for others. When children are taught to be kind to animals, the ripple effects are boundless and children are less likely to abuse a pet or bully a classmate. We believe that by fostering the human-animal bond, children learn caring connections toward all living beings making a better future for animals and people. 

PARTNERSHIPS: In addition to countless elementary schools across the country, Tails That Teach currently partners with a growing list of animal organizations including Los Angeles County Animal Care, OC Animal Care, Marley's Mutts, Inland Valley Humane Society, Gabriel's Angels Arizona, Wags & Walk, Bark Avenue Foundation, Shelter Hope Santa Clarita, Humane Society of Missouri, Dumb Friends League Denver, and the Nashville Humane Society. 

Tails That Teach is also the proud founder of National Rescue Dog Day which recognizes the amazing ways rescue dogs impact human lives and brings awareness to the countless number of dogs waiting in shelters for their forever home.
