Humane Education

The goal of our Humane Education Department is to teach the importance of compassion and kindness towards animals.  WHS humane education programs are designed to be fun and educational.  These include hands-on programs focusing on K-12, such as classroom presentations, shelter tours and service projects.

Classroom topics include:

  • Compassion and kindness towards animals
  • Dog bite prevention and safety
  • Spay/neuter education
  • Animal cruelty and neglect
  • Native wildife safety
  • Animal identification (i.e. dog licenses/cat id tags) and safety

Caring for Critters Community Service Program encouraging groups of children under the age of 12 to perform service projects in their community to benefit homeless animals.

Weekly programs, such as Kendall Kids at Kendall Elementary School, incorporate humane education into daily school curriculum and activities.
