The San Diego Humane Society and Pro Kids Partner to Provide Humane Education and Animal Training to Under-served Children in City Heights
12:33 PM, Wednesday, February 22
The San Diego Humane Society and SPCA has teamed up with Pro Kids, The First Tee of San Diego, to provide Humane Education through animal enrichment to under-served, low-income children. Project TRUST (Teaching Respect Using Sympathy and Training) is an after-school program which provides Humane Education and hands-on animal training. It gives the children a positive and educational after-school activity, while also providing weekly enrichment and socialization for the animals as they await adoption.

“Project TRUST is designed to teach children to have compassion and respect for all living things, starting at a young age,” says Annie Petersen, Education Manager for the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA. “Exposing them to animals and developing that respect early on has a substantial, life-long impact and builds a more compassionate society, which makes programs like Project TRUST so essential.”

“Teaming up with the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA for Project TRUST is a natural fit for Pro Kids. It is part of our mission to teach compassion and respect to young people. We are grateful for the opportunity to extend those lessons to include our animal friends” says Felipe Salazar, Program Manager for Pro Kids.

WHEN: February 22 – March 9, 2012

WHERE: Pro Kids
