Education

We believe that education for tolerance and awareness is the guarantee for a humane future, and therefore we are continually developing the activities of our education department. This department, in the Society’s complex, hosts various groups of children and adolescents (school classes, youth movements, soldiers, youth from the Diaspora, children and adolescents at risk and others) and we operate activities at schools, in community centers and with youth movements.

In the center of the activities are values such as tolerance, empathy, responsibility, generosity and respect for nature and the environment. Each one of them is a big word, but when we break them down into actions that stem from caring and from love, the words become a way of life. Through the activities of education, we are trying to create a fertile dialogue about responsibility and respect for the animals around us and for the world in which we live, from which all sides can contribute.

Through the activities of education, we are trying to create a fertile dialogue about responsibility and respect for the animals around us and for the world in which we live, from which all sides can contribute.

In addition to this we publish special newsletters and pamphlets for children, we have staged encounters between authors and young children, and we intend to open a center for healing by means of animals with the help of professional and experienced staff.

Group visits at the Society’s complex
Organized groups that come to visit the Society enjoy a guided tour and a hands on encounter with the animals. During the tour, three principal subjects are brought out: the situation of abandoned animals, responsible adoption and neutering and castration. Afterwards the members of the group walk the dogs that are candidates for adoption.

The visit and the guidance are given free of charge. The length of the tour: a minimum of one and one half hours.

 


Classes outside of the Society’s complex
Counselors from the education department go out to schools and other institutions to teach a 90 minute lesson appropriate to each age group. The lesson includes a frontal lecture, colorful worksheets, cards for group work, a game and a video clip.

This activity, which is intended for classes of up to 40 children, is free of charge. In addition we would be happy to help your school with additional educational projects that are connected with animals.

To receive additional details and to coordinate visits, please get in touch with us by telephone: *4553, (+972)-3–5136500.
