“Children trained to extend justice, kindness and mercy to animals
become more just, kind and considerate in their relations with one another.”
-US National PTA Congress, 1933
WHAT IS HUMANE EDUCATION?
Humane education teaches kindness, empathy, compassion and respect for all living beings. Lesson plans provide knowledge about animals and animal welfare issues and inspire action to prevent animal suffering. As experts have recognized the link between child abuse, animal abuse and violence against people, the value of humane education in schools is greater than ever.
OUR HUMANE EDUCATION PROGRAMS:
The purpose of the Fredericton SPCA’s humane education programs is to be proactive and help prevent further abuse, neglect and abandonment of animals through programming that informs and instills empathy,compassion and responsibility for all living beings.
