Through our programming, participating youth can begin to turn their life around. Working with the animals, youth will experience a safe, relaxed, fun environment where they can begin to establish a trusting, non-judgmental relationship with animals who also have a painful past. With this relationship, kids can begin to heal and value themselves, building self-esteem and taking the first steps toward a brighter future. Additionally, when children are abused they often turn around and start to hurt those smaller or weaker than themselves. By teaching empathy toward animals, we can break that cycle of abuse.
