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