Become a Humane Hero with the Hand in Paw Kids Club!
In the Hand in Paw Humane Heroes Academy, we will teach children all about animals. We’ll show them how to help animals in their community by giving them valuable information to share with friends and family!
Humane Heroes Academy will empower youth in our community to be the best animal advocates they can be. At the core of this program is the human-animal bond. This bond is strengthened when children are taught to respect and appreciate animals. Whether your child is a lifelong animal lover or new to animal interactions, this is the activity for them!
We achieve our goal in multiple ways. First, HSSA strives to educate our Heroes about the responsibilities of pet ownership as well as the important role these animals play in our lives and community. Second, we want to teach our Heroes the importance of being an advocate and educator within their community of peers, family, and friends.
Topics covered in the Humane Heroes Academy include:
Basic animal care
Community cats and TNR
Animal cruelty prevention
Service learning projects to benefit pets in our care
Fundraising to benefit pets in the community
Proper nutrition and food-related dangers
