What is Humane Education?

Humane Education is about learning to respect life in our homes, communities and the environment. It encourages kindness and empathy for both human and nonhuman animals and promotes understanding of our many diverse habitats. Most importantly, humane education strives to establish a sense of responsibility, making the world a better, more humane place.


The Need for Humane Education in Georgia

Thousands of unwanted pets are euthanized every month. Animal cruelty is too common, and often perpetrated by young people. Violence and bullying are serious problems in our schools. Humane Education programs address these issues and stimulates critical thinking about solutions.
