It’s here! We are extremely excited to offer this free teaching manual to youth educators and leaders everywhere. Kathy Barton, 4th grade teacher from Oklahoma, developed this manual with the help of friends of HandicappedPets.com. This simple, accessible curriculum guide is adaptable to many ages in classroom or group settings.
In a time when violence and intolerance occurs all too often, this unique approach to helping children learn compassion through witnessing it through handicapped pets and then taking action themselves is invaluable. Please download it, share it, spread the word.
The last page of the manual is a resource listing of caretakers of handicapped pets who are willing to go into classrooms as part of this program. If you and your pet would be willing to make a classroom or youth group visit, please email us here to be included in the listing, which will be updated on a regular basis.
