Humane Education Program

Humane Education Program

As part of the Community Engagement Partnership offered through the California State University at Northridge, HART collaborated with Professor Sabina Magliocco who developed a capstone graduate course for her students; a unique curriculum based in service learning and focusing on the animal/human bond. The students worked together with HART volunteers to design a K–12 education program using HART’s principle belief that responsible and humane treatment of animals creates a more compassionate society. This program will be integrated into the local schools and other community organizations.

Currently, HART encourages school field trips and visitations from other youth groups to visit the shelter and experience the animals on a one to one basis.

The Senior Noble Companion Program (Seniors for Seniors)

The Senior Noble Companion Program matches our senior cats, 8 years or older, with senior citizens aged 62+. Senior Cats make an ideal companion for seniors. The cat finds a loving and peaceful home and the senior gets the devotion of a grateful pet. Research shows that pet ownership benefits us through an increase in activity, improved moods and health, and mental stimulation. But it doesn’t take a research study to know that a senior cat’s soft fur and loud purr can help relieve stress, and provide loving companionship… helping both the cat and their person live a happier and perhaps longer life.

The adoption fees for this program are waived. HART will do an adoption follow-up to make sure the senior and their cat are doing well, and to answer any questions they might have. And if at some future time the senior becomes unable to take care of their precious cat, they or a family member may return the cat to HART, where they can be certain that we will find their cat another loving home.
