A request we get quite often is if we can bring animals to a classroom for a visit. The answer is yes, but what is the purpose of the visit? At SICSA, our Humane Education Department has a plethora of experiences for children of all ages, including our Paw Packs. A Paw Pack is when SICSA educators will visit your classroom or library with adoptable pets for a special presentation and deliver a Paw Pack of humane education materials for your classroom to keep. SICSA’s Humane Education Department focuses on respect, responsibility & empathy for all animals in a way that allows our dogs and cats to be a catalyst to building a strong foundation for people to learn more about becoming animal advocates. From this foundation, our team strives to help children to extrapolate key humane education concepts from their SICSA experiences and apply that information to not only their own self-esteem but also the way that they see and interact with others in their community in order to develop their whole person, social & emotional development.
When you book a Paw Pack, you will receive a humane education lesson with coordinating activities; interactions with an adoptable animal; an age-appropriate book with a humane message for your classroom or library; a Paw Pack booklist for further reading; and other SICSA goodies.
So, yes, we will visit your classroom with animals, but we also want to spread a humane message, and help your classroom while focusing on respect, responsibility & empathy. To schedule a Paw Pack, please contact our Nationally Certified Humane Educator at 937-294-6505 ext. 24.
