Humane Education Programs

kissingdogTeaching children respect & kindness
for all living creatures.

The Humane Society of Greater Miami believes that the building of a more kind, just and loving community for the pets and people of Miami-Dade County begins with instilling the values of kindness and compassion. At public and private schools, scouting troops, special needs groups, local libraries, various community youth organizations as well as adult organizations, the Humane Society of Greater Miami teaches the young and old appropriate lessons about kindness to animals, empathy, responsible pet care and the causes and results of pet overpopulation. If you would like to request a humane education speaker to visit your child’s classroom or scout troop, please follow the instructions at the bottom of this page.
