When children grow up in neighborhoods or homes affected by violence, they sometimes replicate that violence by victimizing animals. The Wisconsin Humane Society's (WHS) People and Animals Learning (PAL) program seeks to instill empathy for animals in kids from at-risk backgrounds at a young age by teaching them humane education.
Two young participants of the PAL program pair off with a shelter dog, which they train to become a well-mannered member of an adoptive family. During training, children are empowered with the responsibility of caring for the animals, learning to respect them and better understand their behavior. Children can then teach their peers about the need to prevent animal guardians from practicing cruelty and neglect. WHS requires additional funding to purchase supplies for dog training, as well as transportation and snacks for PAL participants.
Join G-Team and donate $9 to help youth learn to train and bond with dogs. If G-Team members raise $567, the Wisconsin Humane Society can fund PAL participation for three children, including snacks, transportation, and supplies. Each additional $189 raised will fund program participation for another child.
