WITH RESCUED DOGS
classes now online
We have partnered with Dogs of Character to create the online version of Healing Species. Currently teaching in Elementary Schools now, the program will expand to Middle, Jr. and High Schools.
The Healing Species is a violence intervention / character and compassion education outreach. Through the assistance of rescued dogs, dogs nobody else wanted, we teach children a process from which to understand and overcome abuse, neglect, and grief while teaching life skills in self-esteem, conflict resolution, anger management, respect for the feelings of others, and in gaining success through acts of compassion and responsibility instead of returning "violence for violence."

“Opportunities like Healing Species empower kids to move from being anti-social to being pro-social.”
