Cyprus Fire Crisis:
WE NEED HELP!
On Monday this week, we were shocked to find out one of the shelters we rehome dogs from was intentionally set on fire. We now have an emergency situation, where we have to rehome 30 dogs ASAP or else they’ll have no where to go and could get put down.
We want to positively impact one million children and dogs.
By 2025, we will have 800,000 children in youth outreach programmes, 190,000 children benefiting from animal-assisted therapy, and 10,000 dogs adopted into loving families.
Helping children understand the importance of animals.
Education is one of the most important elements of a comprehensive approach to changing behaviour. As human behaviour is an extremely influential factor in how animals are treated, we believe that the future of animal welfare lies with younger generations showing compassion and understanding.
Dogs can change a child’s life, helping them become more confident.
We fund and encourage the wider reach of animal-assisted therapy projects in order to positively impact more children. Particularly outside of the UK, many children live in fear of dogs and therefore do not understand the value of building a relationship with a sentient being dissimilar to themselves.
Growing up with a dog. There’s nothing better.
Dogs have a special place in the hearts of many adults and children. If well trained and supervised, dogs provide many valuable lessons and benefits to children. Find out five great reasons dogs are super companions for kids as they grow up together.
