Animal Welfare Education for Children
Teaching children how to interact with animals safely in a country where rabies is present saves human lives and makes the community safer for everyone. Dog bites and the fear of dog bites can be the trigger for dog culls.
During the interactive sessions, the children role-play, answer questions, colour and talk with the presenter about their own animals and experiences. We discuss animals’ basic needs, promote respect, positive handling and interaction, bite prevention and what to do if you are bitten. At the end of the session, each child signs a pledge to “be a dogstar” and look after animals.
Animal Welfare Education for Adults
We often see animals suffering caused by neglect of basic emotional or physical needs. The failure of an owner to seek treatment; a lack of understanding of dietary requirements, or misguided treatment or actions are usually the main causes of such abuse. While it’s not deliberate cruelty the result is still an animal enduring suffering, distress and even death.
Our series of information leaflets gives an overview of animal welfare and specific examples (and positive changes) that even the most low-income household can implement. Leaflets are given to all owners bringing animals to our clinics and handed out village-wide during our outreach clinics. We are expanding our program to deliver leaflets via our children’s education programs and developing educational talks at community centres and Temples.
