EDUCATION – COMPASSION - EMPATHY
Badges for Bullies and The Rescue Inn, Inc. are working together to provide Humane Education training for northeast Ohio communities. Companion animals are an important part of our households with 68.5% of Americans having approximately 82.5 million pets.
The link between violence to animals and violence to people has been well documented. The current of challenge of bullying is a reflection of this. Children who bully others, animals and other children alike, typically grow up to bully and abuse others. That is why we believe it is important that children form a healthy, nurturing bond with their pets and learn from an early age that speaking out against animal and child abuse (including bullying) is the right thing to do. It is our hope that by educating our youth to be more compassionate towards animals others, and to speak out when they see abuse, we can be a safer, more respectful, and more compassionate society as a whole.
We are looking for additional members to join our team. We provide you with the training and the materials and work to pair the right volunteer with the right group. If you are interested in promoting compassion and empathy in our community, please contact me.
