Inspiring a Humane Generation

Teaching kids about compassion for animals is important. At HSSW, we're inspiring a humane generation with programs and projects to get kids involved. 

Education Programs

Camps and Classes - Even the youngest members of our community can make a difference in the lives of the dogs and cats in our care. Our humane education programs are available for kids grades 3-8 and include both summer and school-year programs.

Classroom Programs - We can take our show on the road with these important classroom programs. From preschool to 4th grade, these programs help kids stay safe when interacting with animals. 

Learn more about our our education programs.

Projects for Kids

From food drives to crafts, kids of all ages can support the animals of the Humane Society for Southwest Washington. Check out projects for kids that benefit the dogs and cats in our care.

Printable Handouts

Staying safe around pets is important! These handouts are a great way to teach kids at home or in the classroom.

Coloring Sheets - A fun, educational, and crafty way to teach kids about safe interactions with animals. Grab the markers and print off a coloring sheet to teach your child about Responsible Pet Ownership and How to Greet a Dog

Body Language - Help your child learn what a dog or cat is saying with their body! Dog Body Language and Cat Body Language flyers can help kids stay safe interacting with pets. 

Safe Interaction with Pets - Knowing how to greet and interact with pets is important. Polite people-manners often translate to polite dog-manners. Common Sense Dog Interaction can be easy!
