HELPING TO SHAPE A KINDER FUTURE FOR ANIMALS
Teaching students about animal welfare and responsible pet ownership in schools will play an important role in reducing the need for intervention and will help to protect the welfare of tens of thousands of animals in the future.
At TEARS, we believe that it is so important to educate children about animals from a young age. Taking care of pets is a huge responsibility and there is a lot involved in making sure that your pets are well looked after, loved and cared for. Children are the future and we are very eager to engage the youth in animal welfare and the plight of the less fortunate out there.
Schools have made such a huge difference in countless animals lives through their involvement and collaborations with TEARS. We are so thankful for all the schools that have reached out to us, your support has been truly amazing.
If you are interested in talks at your school or would like to do any collaborations or want donation tins at school, please feel free to contact TEARS on email@example.com
We are able to bring one or two animals to our school talks if you would like, however with bringing them along we are only able to do talks after 10:00 AM.
