Fostering an awareness of all the other species who share this
Humane Education fosters compassion and teaches kindness and
respect for other animals. Empathy leads to compassion and
considerations for others. This is one of the most important elements
of character and humane education.
Humane Education is long-term life insurance for the animals and
"Children trained to extend justice, kindness, and mercy to animals become more just, kind and considerate in their relations to each other. Character Training along these lines will result in men and women of broader sympathies, more humane, more law abiding, in every respect more valuable citizens."

THE LATEST PHENOMENA......ANIMAL HERO KIDS!!!!!!
America's Youth is leading the way in both ANIMAL AWARENESS & ACTS OF
KINDNESS. An 11 year old Tennessee girl spoke against penning fox or coyote
at the Fish & Wildlife Commission. Volunteers protect Sea Turtle hatchlings
to find the sea. Miami students rescued a beaten puppy thrown down a sewer
grate. School club are creating Meatless Mondays. An 8 year old spoke to
city commissioners to ban electro shock prods. A 13 year old in
Pennsylvania is producing a Vegan Cooking Show for You Tube,
internationally, youth are also protesting animal abuse.
The founder of Animal Hero Kids, Susan Hargreaves, has worked tirelessly
for three decades with schools, media, law enforcement, local citizen
groups, national organizations to bring attention to the ills of factory
farming and cruelty to animals. Now, this awareness and the opportunity to
bring change are becoming the focus of our American Youth. Teachers,
politicians, entertainers, newscasters, parents, law enforcement and
organizations are joining with students to transform and educate Americans
about being heroes to all species of animals.
Another MILESTONE in this transformation is the RUSSELL SIMMONS CREATIVE
ANIMAL HERO KIDS AWARD in Los Angeles, California, late November, 2013. The
Award will be given to any student under 17 years, who creates/produces a
song, dance, poem, speech, rap, video that conveys the importance of helping
animals. This award joins the NFL Heisman Trophy Winner, Ricky Williams,
Animal Hero Award. Last year, Juliette West received the award for raising
her own funds and the journey to Thailand to rescue an elephant from abuse
in the animal/elephant trade. WHO will be our next student hero?
Looking for collaborative partners, sponsors, donors, supporters and
volunteers for this years' Animal Hero Kids Awards in Los Angeles.
