New Global Education Program Brings Compassion into the Classroom

Cats and dogs are two of the world’s most universal species, living side by side with people in hundreds of millions of homes and communities in every human society on this planet.

Yet, on every continent and in every culture, dogs and cats continue to be subject to cruel and inhumane treatment. And a growing body of research has shown that violence against animals is connected to violence against people.

To help address the root causes of animal cruelty, the International Fund for Animal Welfare is launching a new global educational program, Cats, Dogs and Us, which introduces students ages 5-14 around the world to the many different ways that people live with cats and dogs and helps develop knowledge, skills, and empathy and respect.

Lucky LA Pet Owners

Pet owners can be found in the suburbs, country and the city. Each location has its pro’s and con’s. We all adapt to the area we live and learn how to live happy with our pet. Being a country girl I fully understand the challenges that come with my dogs running free in the pastures. Sometimes they return with a faint smell of something odd and not too pleasant. A quick bath will cure the odor and all is back to normal. Raising a canine in the city is another story of one I am not familiar. Wherever you live we all share the same dilemma of not knowing where our beloved companion will be welcome.

There is a new app out there that sounds as though it is great. We are unable to test drive the app since at the moment it is for the LA area. We don’t usually write about things that are so limited to a specific area, and here’s the big but, the app is a must have for LA pet owners! We are hopeful in getting the word out so they can hurry and expand to other areas.
