Paws For Africa
Article obtained from www.pawsforpeople.co.za
Our "Paws for Africa" pet education programs, aim not just to educate children but the general public at large too.
In our experience we still meet many children and grown ups who have been bitten by dogs. Whilst this is totally unacceptable, we often find that human ignorance has exacerbated the situation.
Our lifestyles (townhouse living is just one example) play a huge roll in the current existing lack of human/animal interaction. Our programs offer an opportunity for folks and children to learn in a fun, positive way, that animals and people can co-exist happily.
Respect for each other begins with respect for all other living things - animals are excellent teachers!
