The Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center promotes responsible pet ownership and humane treatment of all animals by providing educational programs to school children, scout troops, and community and service organizations, as well as at a variety of community events.

What is Humane Education?


…a generation with the passion and skills to solve the most pressing challenges of our time, successfully and joyfully. 

… if each of us were prepared for our unique role in creating a better world from the time we were born.

…if making humane choices were part of every aspect of our lives.

IMAGINE the world we would create.

Humane education is the key to creating such a world.  

Humane education not only instills the desire and capacity to live with compassion, integrity, and wisdom, but also provides the knowledge and tools to put our values into action in meaningful, far-reaching ways.  

Humane education enables us to find solutions that work for all by approaching human rights, environmental preservation, and animal protection as interconnected and integral dimensions of a healthy, just society.

We have a variety of programs available for children and are hard at work developing even more.
