WELCOME TO PAW JUSTICE
Paw Justice has a zero tolerance attitude towards animal abuse. It works with the community to reduce animal abuse and cruelty. Paw Justice has various campaigns and programmes which aim to promote its causes. We act as advocates in the community for those with no voices and promote education and public awareness to bring about social change. Join your voice with ours - become the voice for the animals.
YOUTH EDUCATION: STARTING AWARENESS EARLY
We believe that prevention of animal abuse and cruelty starts with a change in our society. What better place to start than with our youth, the future generation of our country?
Paw Justice youth education is about empowering our youth to make a difference in their homes, schools and communities.
Paw Justice wants to teach our youth compassion and responsible behaviour towards animals. We want to help our youth to recognise that all creatures matter, not just those that are easy to love (the cute and fluffy ones), but all animals.
We empowered our youth by encouraging them to participate in our “Show the Paw to Change the Law” petition, a petition calling for harsher sentences for animal abusers. We want to show our children that they can make a difference and that their opinion does count.
Paw Justice worked with Angela Smith, author of children’s book “I love my Dog” introduced in March 2012. By making animal education an everyday part of our children’s lives, we hope to instil in them a sense of compassion and empathy towards our animals and to ensure they treat animals with respect.
Paw Justice is also in the process of setting up a youth education programme in conjunction with Barkley Manor, teaching our children the basic dog safety rules and educating them generally about dog behaviour. The aim is reduce the number of horrific dog attacks on our children which occur regularly as a result of lack of understanding and education.
Our work with the youth of New Zealand has been rewarding, with children responding well around the country and letting us know they want to be heard.
SCHOOL KIDS INSPIRING OTHERS
Today we presented a Paw Justice Achievement Award to the Children at Oranga Primary School for their pictures and contributions of artwork for our Children’s Education Book “I love my Dog”.
The book is about learning empathy, love and understanding of animals. A Big thank you to the children and to the School for getting involved in this project.
