Cook County Animal and Rabies Control provides a “Safety with Animals” program to the elementary schools of Cook County. We teach elementary school children how to interact with pets and wildlife. We teach elementary school children how to protect themselves if approached by a stray dog or roaming raccoon. For the middle school children, we have a “Humane Care for Animals” program which teaches them that being cruel to animals is not cool. We hope that intervention at this age will prevent dog fighting and the disposable pet syndrome that we often see developing in high school age children especially in an urban setting. For your schools participation in this training, please contact our office for details in scheduling.
