Welcome to the OHS Humane Education Program, a site for educational exchange and creativity. We promote learning for all ages in youth kindness, empathy, compassion, and protection of companion animals and wildlife.

OHS Humane Education welcomes story ideas from the public to include:

  • Topics of interest about animal welfare
  • Ways to help students to understand that caring for animals promotes environmental ethics and social justice
  • Promotion of  equality and human dignity, harmonious relations, and the humane treatment of living creatures.

Check out our OHS e-Library! Explore educational e-books, read along stories, and humane education newsletters. You can also find past OHS Animal Tales.
