A Kids’ Guide to Protecting & Caring for Animals
How to Take Action!
Cathryn Berger Kaye, M.A., and The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals 
A Kids’ Guide to Protecting & Caring for Animals

Do you want service learning activities and projects for middle and high school kids that make a difference on the local, national, and global scene? This free workbook, part of Free Spirit’s How to Take Action! series by internationally renowned service learning expert Cathryn Berger Kaye, is what you need. Click to download it now.

A Kids’ Guide to Protecting & Caring for Animals teaches about issues related to animal welfare, such as:
  • cruelty prevention
  • emergency readiness (caring for animals in disasters)
  • wildlife rehabilitation
  • animal advocacy
  • habitat preservation
  • shelter volunteering
  • animals in the workforce
  • animal welfare throughout history

Kids explore ways to address the needs of animals—both domestic and wild—read what others in the world (including young people) have done and are doing to help, find out what their community needs, and develop a service project. The workbook includes facts, quotations, real-life examples, write-on pages, resources, a note to adults—and a lot of inspiration to get out there and make a difference in the world. Includes exclusive interviews with Ed Sayres, president of the ASPCA, and Kathe Koja, author of straydog.

Teachers, parents, and group leaders: Use this workbook in a classroom or youth-serving organization, an after-school program, or as a family. It can be used on its own or as a companion to The Complete Guide to Service Learning.

Created in collaboration with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

“An outstanding service-learning book . . . extremely timely as more and more kids and youth are spending less time with other animals and out in nature and more time in front of computer screens. This book ‘is designed to open minds, create possibilities, and encourage the lasting benefits that occur when making a contribution of one's personal talents and skills,’ and it does this and more.”—Children, Youth and Environments Journal

“Wonderful guide to compassion and responsible treatment of creatures that can't speak for themselves. Highly recommended.”—Midwest Book Review, The Pets/Wildlife Shelf
