Our Youth Education Program strives to help students who love animals and are passionate about the environment and wildlife to start Peace Fur Paws club at their school. The first Peace Fur Paws club started at Westmount Collegiate Institute during the Fall of 2014 and it has been a huge success. With close to 60 members to date, the number continues to grow. Governed by a team of extremely enthusiastic students including one of our founders, Leanna Oki, Peace Fur Paws at WSI has been educating and raising awareness about international animal welfare issues including ethical issues surrounding the fur industry, and laboratory testing of products.
The goal of our Youth Education Program is to bring to the forefront urgent international animal welfare issues, the truth of how commercial industries conduct their practice, make their products, and the sacrifices, ethical concerns, and often cruelty that is involved, and most importantly, how we can help to make a difference. Often, many factual pieces of information are often hidden from the public by the companies in fear of negative repercussions. Ad campaigns adopted by many companies are often misleading and do not represent truthful information, and we truly believe awareness is the key to helping us develop more compassion and consciousness.
For anyone who is interested in starting an animal welfare club at their school, contact us and we’d be happy to help!
