.Kids Speak for Pets
students spend four sessions together: learning about pets and pet-ownership, the role of an animal shelter in the community, and expanding their reporting and writing skills. They meet animal ambassadors and take a "behind the scenes" tour of the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter during the program as well. These creative and engaged students craft mini-bios for shelter pets and become educators themselves, bringing the mission of kindness, care, and responsibility to their communities.
These are pictures from the original Pet Start
program in Vancouver, Washington and from more recent visits to schools around Santa Cruz County, California
