Operation Kindness Humane Education

Benefiting Kids, Kittens and Pups

Kindness for Kids

Launched in 2014, the Kindness for Kids program partners with Metroplex schools and after-school care programs to benefit both kids and pups. Operation Kindness volunteers bring friendly shelter dogs to help teach the fun, engaging lessons. The dog’s backstory is used for learning about math, history, the environment, science and creative problem solving. Through these lessons, children learn how to care for the family pet, and develop greater compassion and empathy for all life. To schedule your school or after-school care program, contact Lynn Handley at lhandley@operationkindness.org

Want to Help?
Volunteers are needed to present a fun, interactive humane education program to students during regular school hours on campus and after school at local recreation centers. Those who are interested must have a heart for children, a love for animals and be able to present the lessons. All volunteers must pass a criminal background check and attend a volunteer orientation. For more information about this rewarding program, contact Lynn Handley at lhandley@operationkindness.org.

Kamp Kindness

Kamp Kindness is the popular summer day camp that offers children ages 7 to 12 the opportunity to learn about the plight of the burgeoning pet population and to take proper care of animals. Through direct, frequent contact with our homeless pets, campers are taught the importance of humane animal treatment.
