Teaching Kindness and Compassion

What Is Humane Education?

  • A concept that encourages compassion and respect for both people and animals
  • An understanding of the interdependence of all living things in our environment
  • A way of thinking that helps both adults and children alike gain a sense of their role and responsibility to help care for the world around them—including animals

Rescue Village serves as a leading humane education resource for the Northeast Ohio community. Through our work and programs, we aim to be a source of information and support, as well as a driving force to creating a more humane world for animals in Geauga County and beyond. Our Humane Education department provides a variety of programs and events for community members. We invite you to learn more and take advantage of these opportunities.
