MISSION & HISTORY.
TEACHING INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF CLASSROOMS
Since its creation in 2002, advocating humane values for a better society has been the mission of the Humane Society of Dominica.
The Humane Society of Dominica brings together people who have an interest, and oftentimes a passion, to act and bring about change in how we treat animals, how we treat each other and how we deal with our natural environment.
From the very begining, implementing a humane education program was the best way to motivate a new generation to care, to adopt and to start endorsing spaying/neutering pets. It was important to build a good foundation for all future humane efforts to succeed.
To further this long term objective, the Humane Society’s humane education program has been actively engaging children and young people in schools throughout the island, reaching more than 15,000 of them to this day and remains the backbone of our organization.
Our Youth Group members are an integral part of our organization.
The group's activities vary widely but have one thing in common: what can we do to spread a culture of kindness to all, encourage the better treatment of animals and take an active part in conserving our planet?
We need young people to be part of the solution: to help out during our free spay/neuter clinics, to give a hand in the aftermath of natural disasters, to raise funds for our various programs and to communicate our message at school and in the community.
If you are 14-21 years old, care about these issues, want to learn and think about them, join us, we are waiting for you!
