Research has shown children who learn to be kind to animals will often continue into adulthood with compassion and respect for other living beings. We believe this to be true and are committed to educating children about pet compassion and safety.  In February 2020, DCVR launched the "Pet Safety 101" program to offer local elementary schools interactive, educational presentations to their students.  If your school is interested in participating in our program, please contact us for more information.
