Understanding humane education concepts will enable individuals to make responsible and humane decisions throughout life. The benefits of humane education are far-reaching. In addition to learning the responsibilities of pet ownership, students are made aware of the consequences of animal neglect and abuse in both community and larger societal contexts.
The development of sensitivity towards animals enhances each child’s emotional and social development. Problem solving, conflict management, and the ability to make wise and considerate choices are all integral parts of humane education.
