Animal Haven’s Caring Kids Program introduces children to basic animal care and informs them about existing issues in animal welfare. We are very excited to partner with Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers’ (HEART) to enhance the program and offer exciting new activities and topics, ranging from farm animals to wildlife.
Caring Kids nourishes the bond between humans and animals and encourages young people to become animal advocates in their community.
Program Description: Winter/Spring 2017
Animal Haven and H.E.A.R.T. are excited to offer this educational, hands-on, service-learning based program about animals for both 5 – 6 year olds and 7 – 8 year olds.
The theme for our Winter/Spring programming is Animal Rescuers. The program will be offered five times throughout the semester, three for 5 – 6 year olds and two for 7 – 8 year olds. Each program will take place on three consecutive Fridays from 4:00 – 5:15 pm. Find out more about the Animal Rescuers program below!
Theme: Animal Rescuers
Description: Youth will learn about ways that animal shelters help our dogs and cats. They will participate in age appropriate activities around the shelter to help the shelter’s dogs and cats and engage in service projects to have an even greater impact on animals around the country. At the end of the program there will be an official Caring Kids: Animal Ambassadors ceremony where they will receive a certificate and badge to commemorate their involvement in the program.
