outrageous amount of unnecessary bloodshed
Americans levy against millions of healthy happy
dogs annually is the Elephant in the
room!!!Clearly, the larger animal protection
organizations are not going to solve this
problem - none even have any 'boots on the
ground' staff nor volunteers to assist in the
education of our current or future guardians..
By doing nothing to educate the next generation
of pet owners/guardians, we condemn the millions
and billions of pets yet to be born, to the same
unforgiving fate. Very sad for a
Century CARES is dedicated to supporting animal
welfare, operating rescue facilities for
domesticated animals, and teaching humane
education to all current and future guardians.
21st Century CARES has implemented a model
program in instructing youth about the
humanitarian treatment of fellow creatures. This
program primarily moves to reach all students in
grades 5-12, and targets troubled and at risk
teens by introducing students to rescued
companion dogs. It delivers a comprehensive and
innovative program that helps them learn
empathy, understanding, compassion and
responsibility towards animals and, by
extension, other human beings. 21st CARES
partners with the courts and public school
systems to reach out in a creative way to young
people who are in need of positive role models
and productive ways to channel their energies.
The organization also assists animal protection
organizations and parent groups with
implementing humane education.
2010, adults in this country made decisions that
ultimately resulted in the unnecessary killing
of over 8 million healthy companion animals!
This is based on simple ignorance. Our children
could make better decisions for the future if
only given the proper information on which to
base their decisions. We must only show
them that 21st Century CARES!
the parameters of what people think they know
and showing what many refuse to see, we can see
an end to animal abuse and pet overpopulation in
our lifetime. It is clear that the
problems will not be solved by the large animal
organizations, but, by thinking outside the box.
We provide the building blocks to implement your
own humane education programs & to begin making
changes at the local level. With over
1,000 pages of lesson plans for K-12, troubled
and at risk teens, humane religion & research
articles, we'll help you keep this idea alive!!!
At some point
in time, we must all make the decision to stop
exhausting our energies and resources that place
their focus on only cleaning up yesterday's
messes and to decide we want to see solutions
that will protect the animals yet to be born as
well. We must not lose perspective of our
collective goals. We must expand our
horizons to choose those campaigns that will
help us to accomplish the most and save more
animals in the long run. The animals
who exist today are a very tiny percentage of
the animals who will be abused and ultimately
killed in coming years and decades. Paying
excessive attention to those who suffer today is
condemning millions more to suffer the same fate
- simply born from human ignorance - and yet
another blow to the failing animal welfare and
animal rights movement's ultimate goals.
We can't begin to win the game if only part of
our team understands the rules. These
animals are DYING for humans to learn how to
work smarter and not harder! Humane
Education is the best...... no, the ONLY means
we have of accomplishing these goals!
