Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Humane Education Connection is a 501c3 non-profit organization that strives to reduce the abuse of children and animals through educational programs that utilize the powerful connection of the Human-Animal bond.
Our program, "Canines Helping Kids in Crisis," uses fun, interactive educational activities and curriculum for children who have experienced abuse and/or neglect in their lives; and who now reside in SAFE HOUSE SHELTERS and other facilities.
With the assistance of rescued dogs, we visit each facility on an on-going weekly basis to teach compassion, kindness and character education to break the repeated cycles of abuse and replace it with a POSITIVE attitude, renewed self-esteem, confidence, a sense of responsibility and respect for all life.
All of our dogs have experienced neglect and/or abuse. Their stories are living examples that give hope and courage to the children, that they too can find their happy ending. The dog’s stories also demonstrate the ability to forgive and return nonviolent reactions.
