What is humane education?

At its most basic level, humane education is teaching children to care for the animals that share our world - both in our homes and in our communities. It is about fostering attitudes of respect, responsibility and kindness - for animals and people alike! Its fundamental purpose is to make the world a better place for all living creatures.
