Give the Gift of KIND News through Our Adopt-a-Classroom Program

Kind News Magazines lined up. Many feature various animals and or kids interacting with animals.

Now is the time to start planning for the next school year. More than ever, kids crave the connections created through lessons in empathy and kindness that we offer through our humane education programs. Adopted elementary classrooms receive FREE classroom visits from one of our CAP canine crusaders, with a choice of topics and activities like "How to greet a dog", access to animal themed lesson plans and craft ideas that teachers LOVE, and a year-long classroom subscription of KIND NEWS or KIND NEWS, Jr. magazine published by RedRover.
