We’re proud to support charities making positive changes to society for animals and children in Canada and US!
2019 is an important year for both of our charity partners working to make a real difference to the lives of animals and children in North America.
North Shore Animal League America, celebrating 75 years of saving homeless animals, is promoting their Mutt-i-grees Social and Emotional Learning program for children using shelter dogs to teach kids valuable life skills. Humane is campaigning for important legislative changes before the Fall election in Canada to criminalize bestiality and animal fighting.
With a Fall federal election looming Humane Canada is working hard to get four important Bills made into law before parliament dissolves and the Bills die.
When Humane Canada advocate for the protection of animals they save lives.
Nowhere is this more clearly illustrated than in Bill C-84 proposing important changes to the Criminal Code to protect animals from bestiality and animal fighting. With bestiality strongly linked to child sexual abuse the Bill is not only important for the protection of animals, but also the protection of Canada’s children. If you’d like to help you can send a letter to your MP through Humane’s Canada’s site.
Humane Canada take their responsibility of speaking up for creatures who can’t speak for themselves very seriously, which is why they are also campaigning to get legislation into law to ban the captivity of whales and dolphins, prohibiting cosmetic testing on animals and banning the importation of shark fins.
They need your help to get these Bills into law so if you’d like to help please visit their site to learn more.
North Shore Animal League America (NSALA)
NSALA are the biggest no kill animal rescue and adoption organization in the world! They celebrate 75 years of saving homeless animals this year and are promoting their Mutt-i-grees Curriculum that teaches Social and Emotional Learning with Humane Education to children.
Developed in collaboration with Yale University’s School of the 21st Century the Curriculum is designed to enhance students’ social and emotional competence by teaching empathy, resilience and ethical decision making by exploring the unique characters of shelter dogs and encouraging children to make real connections with the animals. Often taught in conjunction with bullying prevention and when promoting embracing diversity, the Curriculum is taught in over 4,000 schools and libraries in all 50 states, and in Canada. You can learn more about this unique approach here.
We’re proud to support 2 such wonderful organizations working to make a real, positive difference to animals and children in US and Canada, and it’s all made possible through your support of our service. Thank you!
