Humane Education

Over the last 70 years, Prairie Paws Animal Shelter employees and volunteers have passionately provided humane education presentations to thousands of students in elementary, middle and high schools.  By teaching children compassionate behavior toward all living creatures from an early age, they can become amazing positive role models in their homes, schools, and communities.


Prairie Paws is proud to be involved with the Communities in Schools Program since 2012.
