Children + Animals = Love

It’s never too early to start teaching empathy, and in fact, the earlier we start modeling kind and compassionate behavior, the better chances our children have of attaining those qualities.

Children have a natural affinity for animals, so it only makes sense that we foster that genuine and wholesome curiosity by offering as many opportunities for them to get involved with caring for another living being.


Beginning with the 2023-2024 school year, we are partnering with 40 preschool classrooms, and serving upwards of 1200 children ages 3-6 years old.

These are 10 monthly visits for the entirety of the school year (August – May) that allow young children the opportunity to connect with, care for, learn about, and love on the animals in our care!

The cost for this is just $10 per child, per month. What children receive in return truly is immeasurable and priceless – a foundation for compassion, and a lifelong connection with animals and others
