OUR MISSION Saving the lives of animals, changing the lives of children.
WHAT WE DO Tails That Teach is a non-profit organization* that inspires kids to be kind to pets and people! We help bridge that connection through educational programs and our compassion-centered books, Love Me Gently and Gray Whiskers. We donate these books to animal organizations and elementary schools around the world to enhance humane and character education efforts while encouraging literacy.
WHY WE DO IT To empower the next generation to make good choices and to respectfully care for pets and people. When young children are taught to be kind to animals, the ripple effects are boundless and children are less likely to abuse a pet or bully a classmate. Teaching kids to properly care for pets helps them grow up to be compassionate adults and responsible pet owners. By fostering the human-animal bond, children learn caring connections toward all living beings making a better future for animals and people.
PARTNERSHIPS In addition to countless elementary schools across the country, Tails That Teach partners with a growing list of animal organizations across the country. Check out our tremendous impact on Where We Are page.
FOUNDER NATIONAL RESCUE DOG DAY Tails That Teach is also the proud founder of National Rescue Dog Day observed annually on May 20 to recognize the amazing ways rescue dogs impact human lives and brings awareness to the countless number of dogs waiting in shelters for their forever home.
