Our youth programs were created to cultivate and strengthen education, empathy, compassion, and action in our children by increasing their understanding and respect for companion animals, our environment, and ourselves. We want to empower children by giving them the tools necessary to think critically about the real-world challenges affecting the pets we love and the many people that love our pets. We offer opportunities for lessons in service, care, and responsibility allowing children to experience empathy, compassion, and build confidence all while having fun.
