We are looking for Humane Educators
The Education Department is committed to the challenge of teaching humane education. We are committed to equipping young people with the necessary tools to make wise, considerate and kind choices that will crate a more tolerant, less violent and more peaceful world.
Humane education involves far more than the teaching of a simple animal-related curriculum. It is a process through which we:
- assist children in developing compassion, a sense of justice, and a respect for the value of all living creatures.
- provide the knowledge and understanding necessary for children to behave according to these principles.
- foster a sense of responsibility on the part of children to affirm and act upon their personal beliefs.
Numerous studies have shown that there is a correlation between abuse/ violence towards animals and a progression to violence towards people.Breaking this cycle of violence by teaching the tenets of kindness, respect and responsibility for animals is essential to creating a kinder, less violent community. Humane education is a vital step in a positive direction!
Teaching about the bond between people and animals is a birth to death process. Our education department prides itself on having something---in the way of education---for everyone!
Humane Educator Qualifications:
1. Be a good communicator and have strong interpersonal skills
2. Be Enthusiastic
3. Be reliable and punctual
4. Be 18 years of age or older
5. Be a licensed drive and have reliable transportation
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

We further support that bond by making available world-class veterinary care, and outstanding pet obedience and behavior programs.
