The world becomes what we teach. Humane Education explores the ways in which we can do the most good and least harm for all, both in our personal choices and in the systems we support. Service Learning is transforming systems. Together with Humane Education it examines the systematic injustices of both human and nonhuman animals and asks learners to embrace actions that can change the systems surrounding abuse or need. Service-learning activities can help to create change through personal actions and by educating others. Leaving a footprint on a better tomorrow.
This definition is played out daily by our Bosnia Mutt-i-grees Ambassadors. They are not bound by boundaries. They’re boundless. An obstacle crosses their path, and they move around it. They do not accept the vernacular of the institutions or people that choose to spread hatred for the homeless animals. Their passion is fueled by the discourse and are determined to change what it is. They embody what it means to have courage, to never give up and believe that kindness brings hope. One saved life at a time they walk the path despite the resistance. Their approach is with a smile and love in their hearts. They are an inspiration to us all and we are honored to have them in our lives as friends and comrades – part of the Mutt-i-gree Family. We honor their heroic acts and bow to their grace in the face of adversity.
From our heart to theirs,
Jayne Vitale, Director Education & Youth Programs and the entire Mutt-i-grees Team
