II International Humaneness Lesson


Despite the challenges caused by the pandemic and quarantine restrictions, Happy Paw Charity Foundation for stray animals invites educational institutions to take part in the II International Humaneness Lesson dedicated to humane treatment of animals, which is to be held on October 4-6, 2021 and timed to coincide with the World Animal Day (October 4).

The event can be held either offline or online.

We suggest the following questions should be revealed to students during the lesson:

1.How to properly care for a pet.

2.Auxiliary items for animal identification (clip, address label, microchip, token with QR-code).

3.Rabies, ticks, fleas: symptoms and prevention.

4.Walking a dog: danger of poisoning, walking rules.

5.Reasons for stray animals appearing in the streets.

6.Rules of conduct when meeting with stray animals.

7.Why people give up their own animals.

8.How we can help animals.

9.Humane methods of solving the problem of stray animals.

10.Current legal regulations concerning animals.

The Foundation urges not to bring animals to the Humaneness Lesson if they may feel stressful being away from home in crowded places! Take care of your four-paw friends’ health!
