Research proves that children who are taught to be kind towards animals tend to mature into compassionate adults. At North Florida Animal Rescue, we are guided by an ethic of compassion and are delighted to share this philosophy with our community. We do so by providing presentations to schools and others in the community. We also provide educational opportunities through our various programs including our student volunteer opportunities. We are a resource for students and teachers in our community. In addition, we provide opportunities for adults to learn more about care and training of animals through various workshops and classes for the public. We would love the opportunity to visit with your students, or organization to talk about what we do, and how you can help prevent cruelty and save lives.
