Connection and collaboration are important to RedRover. We work with organizations and individuals to expand our reach and impact to promote empathy for animals. Last September, RedRover teamed up with the City of Stockton Humane Education Alliance to bring humane education and empathy training to Stockton, California. RedRover provided a RedRover Readers professional development training to 60 educators from the Stockton Unified School District.
This month, RedRover returned to Stockton to support members of the San Francisco SPCA Humane Education department, who provided lessons on pet safety, responsible pet ownership, overpopulation and wildlife for after-school program staff to implement with their students. RedRover is planning a RedRover Readers training with the San Francisco SPCA this year to reach students in the Bay Area.
Last month, RedRover attended the Association of Professional Humane Educators’ (APHE) National Humane Education Conference. APHE is a membership association that supports humane educators as they teach empathy through education.
RedRover also participated in the Bay Area Humane Educators Regional Spring Meeting in Santa Rosa, California. Humane educators from Santa Rosa, Napa, Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Marin and the East Bay joined together to discuss ways to strengthen their humane education programs. RedRover presented information about the RedRover Readers program and our new e-book app. Everyone was also able to tour the beautiful grounds of the host site, the Forget Me Not Farm at Sonoma Humane Society.
