About

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 educates young children about kindness, compassion, and empathy through our uniquely written books that bridge the connection between people and animals. The books are donated to animal organizations to enhance humane education and community outreach. They are also provided to elementary schools to supplement character education and promote literacy.

WHY WE DO IT: Our books 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 Shelters, OC Animal Care, PAWS Chicago, Marley's Mutts, Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center, Gabriel's Angels Arizona, Wags & Walk, Bark Avenue Foundation, Shelter Hope Santa Clarita, San Diego Humane Society, Humane Society of Missouri, Pasadena Humane Society, Dumb Friends League Denver, Butler County, PA Humane Society, Wallace Annenberg PetSpace, 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.
