This program is suitable for grades K-12, and consists of multiple, separate programs – or lessons – relating to pets and pet care. All of our Lessons in Kindness are accompanied by certified pet therapy dogs. We welcome your group to receive your lesson at the Humane Society, or we can come you! These lessons are taught FREE of charge, but donations are greatly appreciated. Lessons in Kindness can be presented to classrooms, scout troops, after-school programs, and more! Please direct all inquiries to Jessie Clifford at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that this program must be scheduled at least 60 days in advance.
This lesson teaches both compassion and safety. Surprising to many, animals share many of the same emotions that people do! Kids will learn about how animals may present certain behaviors based on their emotions and how we can ready an animal’s body language to stay safe.
This hands-on lesson teaches children about responsibility and what it means to be a caregiver for a dog or cat.
This interactive activity teaches students about the tragedy of pet overpopulation and what that means for the quality of life of these animals. Students will learn about the importance of spaying and neutering, adopting from a shelter, and making a life-long commitment to their pet at home.
Did you know that children are the number one victim of dog bites?! This lesson teaches children how to safely greet an animal, how to know when to leave an animal alone, and what to do if a stray or unknown animal approaches them.
Have you ever wondered where pet stores get their puppies from? This eye-opening lesson brings awareness of the heartbreaking history of Puppy Mills.
The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast invites campers, ages 8-11, to join us at our shelter for our annual summer camp! What an incredibly FUN opportunity for kids to get hands-on experience with our shelter animals, while learning about important animal issues affecting our fury friends. Our camp staff also teach campers about pet responsibility and safety and help campers complete service projects for HSTC shelter animals! This is a two-day camp, held on a Thursday and Friday every June and July. Learn more about Canines, Cats, and Critters Camp.
