PAWS Kids Who Care Program helps Puget Sound Youngsters

Watch the Video

Learn more about the PAWS Kids Who Care Classroom Workshops program that is teaching thousands of Puget Sound schoolchildren how to live more humanely.

PAWS has had a long commitment to educating youngsters about growing up in a humane world, and this tradition continues with the PAWS Kids Who Care Classroom Workshops program. Holly Anderson, the PAWS Humane Education and Outreach Coordinator, visits hundreds of children each session. "They are immediately interested when I say that I'm hear to talk about animals," says Holly. "They almost can't hear anything else. They're almost TOO engaged!" Holly visits each fourth-grade classroom in her program five times, helping kids understand responsible pet care, how to live with wildlife, and other important humane issue. See a short, moving video about the PAWS Kids Who Care program. The Kids Who Care Program needs your help to succeed. If you would like to support our work reaching out to Puget Sound schoolchildren, please donate to PAWS now.
