Adopt for Life!
To teach people of all ages to treat companion animals in a kind,
responsible manner, PAW has developed RPO. This interactive
program focuses on Responsible Pet Ownership - and encourages
pet owners to work through challenges so they can keep their companion
animals for life. Our volunteers offer RPO presentations free
RPO teaches responsibility for pets, animal safety, and respect
for life. And humane education is more important than ever in light
of the connection between animal abuse and violence towards humans:
Educating children about respect for people and animals can foster self-esteem. In addition, educating people of all ages is the key to reversing the tragedy of abandoned and abused animals.
As a result of our society's failure to responsibly care for companion
animals, a shocking number of dogs and cats are abandoned and euthanized
at area shelters every year. In addition to the social costs of killing
so many living beings, there is a huge financial burden on taxpayers.
Ironically, spaying and neutering companion animals would cost far less
than disposing of the abandoned ones.

The Value of Humane Education
In 1903 the National Conference of the PTA issued
a statement that holds true today: "Children trained to extend justice,
kindness and mercy to animals become more just, kind and considerate in
their relations with each other. Character training along these lines
will result in men and women of broader sympathies, more humane,
more law-abiding, in every way more valuable citizens."
