What we do
Our vision is that every pet will one day enjoy a healthy life in a happy home. One of the ways in which we hope to achieve this is by educating the pet owners of the future through free talks for schools and youth groups. The Blue Cross Education Team teaches young people about pet welfare, staying safe around dogs and responsible pet ownership from an early age to encourage behaviour change across a generation. In reaching as many children and teenagers as possible, we can improve the lives of both future pets and their owners, and stamp out cases of animal cruelty and neglect in the process.
In 2019, 112,660 children were educated by Blue Cross education programs nationwide. Our education officers and volunteer speakers across the UK deliver talks to a range of age groups in both primary and secondary schools.
Due to COVID 19 face to face visits in schools have been suspended. However, we still offer virtual talks using Skype and other digital means to those schools which have stayed open. We also have a range of curriculum linked learning resources available for download by teachers and parents at home.
