What are students saying about the Animal Connection?

"I learned that animals can’t tell people when to stop when we hurt them. It’s up to us to take care of them” - 2nd grade student

“I learned animals are like people with feelings. We should treat them the way we want to be treated.” - 4th grade student

“I don’t think I have any suggestions to make this program better. I wish I could be held back so I could do the program again, but I do want to go to 6th grade.” - 5th grade student

What are teachers saying about The Animal Connection?

“The Animal Connection has made a huge impact on my class this year. Students learned about the connections between bullying and abuse, both for humans and animals. They have taken this to heart and treat each other with more kindness. My students look forward to the weekly visits and are sad if they have to miss one." - 5th grade teacher

What are parents saying about The Animal Connection?

“Diego has spoken to us a great deal about the program. He is most concerned about the dogs forced to fight and the number of animals that have to be put down at shelters. He gets it about spaying and neutering. I am so thankful Diego gets to be part of learning the true meaning of caring for animals as well as the consequences of neglecting the responsibilities these animals come with. Thank you for the knowledge and compassion you are teaching.” - Parent of a 3rd grade student
