More than 350 local elementary teachers request humane education materials from our department every school year. We offer monthly materials that teach children how to be respectful and caring in their treatment of animals. Your gift of $30 will help! When you contribute to Adopt-a-Classroom you will provide local students and their teacher with a one-year subscription to the publication KIND News, an award-winning newspaper for children in grades K-6, produced by RedRover. 

We are proud to be able to coordinate this effort to supply KIND News, as well as the Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control video program KIND Club Show, to area teachers and students. For a gift of $30 you will help in our efforts to develop caring, compassionate students that learn to extend kindness to all.

Send your gift payable to Animal Care & Control Education Department and note that is for the Adopt a Classroom Project. Send to Animal Care & Control-Education Department, 3020 Hillegas Road, Fort Wayne IN. 46808. Or simply pay with our secure credit payment site and choose Community Outreach - if you would like for it to benefit a particular teacher or school, please mention in the notes!
