Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.
William Butler Yeats
| Why should Humane Education be taught in all NS schools?
- All children in the province would be taught. Right now its only available when the hardworking volunteers doing Animal Rescue can spare the time.
- Our children would be safer because they would all learn how to interact with animals properly
- It would save a lot of money for the future. More pets would be spayed and neutered. More would be microchipped.
- Children would understand why buying animals from pet stores supports puppy mills and backyard breeders.
Webmaster Note: If you live in Nova Scotia and believe that safer communities tomorrow will start with Humane Education in the public school system today, please contact the NS Minister of Education
