The American Humane Association LIFE Humane Heroes Club

October 21, 2013

In February 2012, prominent philanthropist Lois Pope teamed up with the American Humane Association to establish the LIFE Humane Heroes Club at the Sagemont School in Weston, Florida. Today, the LIFE Humane Heroes Club aims to teach children about the importance of treating animals with respect and compassion and empowers them to promote the cause of animal welfare with their families and friends, and in their communities.

The LIFE Humane Heroes Club operates as an after-school program that follows the humane education curriculum set forth by the American Humane Association. The club complements the AHA’s Be Kind to Animals Week, which teaches children to care for all living things. The LIFE Humane Heroes Club provides downloadable lesson plans on a wide range of animal welfare topics, including the basic needs of animals, the responsibilities of owning a pet, and the problem of pet overpopulation in the United States. Following the success of the program at the Sagemont School, Lois Pope and the AHA hope to implement the program at many other schools around the country in the near future.
