School Kids Take Part In Humane Education Plays

Angels for Animals is a free humane education program from HCWS.

Written by HCWS Board Member Kim Yates

A 5th grade class at John Dooley Elementary School in Henderson, NV performed three plays at the end of the 2011 school year that demonstrated the important lessons they learned about being kind to all creatures on Earth during the Angels for Animals program. The plays concluded a year-long theme that focused on humane education.  This 5th grade class partnered with Heaven Can Wait Animal Society to promote the importance of responsible pet ownership. 

 Early in the year, the students completed a learning unit that detailed the many responsibilities of pet ownership along with a study of the pet overpopulation crisis in our county.  Next, the students created a commercial that was aired on local television stations.  The aim of the commercial was to educate the public about the Spay and Neuter Laws and to encourage the public to spay and neuter their pets to help solve this crisis.  In the spring, the Student Council of John Dooley Elementary School hosted a fundraiser for Heaven Can Wait Animal Society earning the organization more than $500.00. 

 “This has been a very fun and exciting year.  We’ve educated a lot of the people in our community about the importance of responsible pet ownership, and made a lot of money for Heaven Can Wait Animal Society.” said Student Council President and 5th grader Ryan Kissman.

This is John Dooley Elementary School’s second year of involvement with Heaven Can Wait Animal Society.  HCWS provides educational units through the Angels for Animals program which is downloadable by Clicking Here.  Angels for Animals is a free program for all teachers.
